 Ok, but where it is saying that a GPL app cannot use a non GPL

 I think the faq has been written from the point of view
 of someone who tries to use a GPL library in a closed
 source program.

 Here we have a GPL app that may be using a closed source
 library. Unless the license of the library forbids that,
 it should be fine, right?
