GPLv3 files in package used to generate LGPLv2 files

 Few weeks ago I received a complaint on one of the libraries I work
on, that I use GPLv3 files to generate files that are supposedly
LGPLv2. This was on the gnulib part of the library so I reported it
here [0] and sent a patch on [1] to what I understood the bug was. As
this was not patches, I am wondering, was it a bug or it is
intentional to install GPLv3 files in the package, and then use them
to generate some of the LGPLv2 header files? As I use gnulib with the
--lgpl=2 option, I find the latter case quite scary.
