Well, I think it was on this mailinglist or blfs-support where someone explained that the FSF/GNU want the libraries which are still under LGPL to go under full GPL and then you have the natural aversion of GNU-guys with propritary-software in general.

It's a the conbination of the two.

First I thought that dynamic linking between propritary software and GPL-libs was legal, until I learned this info...

With the with the temperment of Richard Stallman in the memory, I can imagine.

Not sure anymore where that was, but I'll look into it to back it up. Don't feel like the risc of talking hot air ;-)
