  This is not about compiling. This is about interpreting, i.e. when
  you need to run a program through an interpreter. This case is
  considered as dynamic linking and both the interpreter and the
  interpreted program must have compatible licenses.
  But as Xavier said, runtime programs are distributed under GPL,
  so this is no more problematic for me.
