Not at all. There's no difference between static and dynamic linking
here, and LGPL explicitly says there's nont. You'd still have to provide
access to machine-readable source of Neon, as per paragraph 4 of LGPL
2.1. Since we don't modify Neon, or rather don't use anything but
released versions, we're not really required to distribute the source
with the binaries. In my ANAL opinion.
