I'm trying to get my App to Harbour for easy distribution. The app depends on two Qt modules which are not yet whitelisted: libQt5SystemInfo and libQt5Positioning. I could ship them as private shared libraries, but they depend on more libraries which you can not link against either: libbluetooth, libudev, libfontconfig.

Libraries
=========
INFO [/usr/share/App/lib/libQt5SystemInfo.so.5.3.0] Private shared library shipped
ERROR [/usr/share/App/lib/libQt5SystemInfo.so.5.3.0] Cannot link to shared library: libfontconfig.so.1
ERROR [/usr/share/App/lib/libQt5SystemInfo.so.5.3.0] Cannot link to shared library: libudev.so.1
ERROR [/usr/share/App/lib/libQt5SystemInfo.so.5.3.0] Cannot link to shared library: libbluetooth.so.3
INFO [/usr/share/App/lib/libQt5Positioning.so.5.2.0] Private shared library shipped
ERROR [/usr/share/App/lib/libQt5Positioning.so.5.2.0] Cannot link to shared library: libfontconfig.so.1
FAILED

I could package the dependencies as well, but some of those are under GPL: libbluetooth. IIRC GPL licenced libraries can not be shipped with closed source apps.

Is there anything I can do except wait for the modules to be whitelisted?

closed source apps anyway must not link against GPL libs. Only dynamic linking against LGPL libs is allowed.

Wait for whitelist or move your application to Chum or Openrepoes. Or opensource your application.
