A FAQ at

Q: If a library is released under the GPL (not the LGPL), does that mean
that any program which uses it has to be under the GPL?

A: Yes, because the program as it is actually run includes the library.

It certainly appears that I would have to distribute the program under the
GPL, or not distribute it at all.  (Maybe the latter case was what you had
in mind...)
