This is not accurate.  If you distribute your code and it links against a 
GPL'ed library, you *must* license it under the GPL.  That's the whole 
point in using GPL for libraries:


IOW, any application or library that links with (say) the GNU Scientific 
Library (GSL) must be GPLv3 or later.

OTOH, if he doesn't distribute his code at all, all licensing 
considerations are moot.
