See http://lists.debian.org/debian-legal/2004/01/msg00284.html, and
in particular http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-faq.html#OrigBSD
The GPL only requires that you keep the credits in the sources, not
that you advertise other people's work or products inside your own
program, even if your program somehow uses that functionality.
Imagine otherwise the credits list required for programs like the
GIMP or so if each used library would have to be mentioned along with
a link to some home page. You'd spend more time on maintaining that
list than on actually adding new functionality.
