If you link against a single .o file that could  be called a part of the GPL 
project, then there could be a problem. If you however link against a separate
work (e.g. an independently developed library) you are definitely right.

The GPL (v2) is intentionally "open" against this kind of linkage.

With the GPLv3 this is different, this is why you need to be extremely careful
with GPLv3 projects. The GPLv3 tries to prevent combinations with most 
libraries.
