Follow-up Comment #2, bug #56863 (project gettext):

I'm not aware of any such standard. I know only about another project with a
similar exception and that is Libtool.

LGPL allows including LGPL-licensed header files into other code without
enforcing LGPL conditions, but there are constrains what such header file can
contain. Especially there is a limit of 10 lines for the inline functions. If
I look at dcpgettext_expr() definition I can count 28 lines.

I'm not a layer. I recommend you asking Free Software Foundation for help. I
think they should be able to provide a qualified answer.
