[thelist] GNU / GPL

Can anyone confirm or deny what my clients lawyer says? He says that if 
I create an EXE (to connect to our web site from his desktop) and I use 
in the source code a package from SourceForge which has:

License: GNU General Public License (GPL), GNU Library or Lesser General 
Public License (LGPL)

Then we can NOT sell the EXE because since we used the GNU/GPL software 
(even just in the source code) we have to make the compiled EXE public 

Is this correct?
