I believe I have seen software that, the first time you run it, goes on the internet and downloads needed GPL libraries and installs them. This is supposedly a workaround because the GPLed library is not actually distributed with the software itself. I have no idea of the legality of this. It's possible the software authors doing this break the law. But I have definitely seen it more than once in non-GPL applications. Worht checking into.
