static libraries license

Giorgos Bontzios
Hi to all,

when compiling my project,
MINGW calls several system libraries many of them are then static linked to the final executable.

E.g.

libm.a
libz.a
libwinpthread.a

This is just an indicative shortlist. The actual number may exceed 100 - it's a big project.

While MINGW is covered by an MIT-licese, what happens when these libs are static linked to the executable?
Do I have to check the license of every such lib?

Thanks,
Giorgos

An emphatic yes.  Some GPL libraries give exception for its use and some do not.
