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.
