Nicolas, to dive more into this issue of Linking, you may have a look
at http://www.ifosslr.org/ifosslr/article/view/44/74 and more
specifically the PDF attached (can't remember the URL of this one).
However, as Sam noted, the Linking exception is not in the standard
GPL, but an additional licensing clause added by the licensor. See
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GPL_linking_exception for a rough overview.

Technically, the GPL covers all works “based on the [GPL] program” so
it does cover developped works and not just the distribution of such
works. Of course, the main obligations arise when you distribute such
covered software which is why a lot of the focus is on distribution.
