Try to apply the same logic to software and incorporation of legal
copies into "larger works". Copying is governed by the GPL Section
1 and Section 3, not Section 2. For a "combined work" (compilation)
you simply state something like

"Portions Copyright ... <license>"

"Portions Copyright ... <license>"

and make sure that your distribution of the compilation in the
object (binary) form complies with all those licenses/agreements.

In the case of reciprocal share-alike licenses like the GPL/CPL/OSL,
that means making the source code of the XYL'd portions (including
derivatives [aka modification/adaptations]) available to your
licenses free of royalties.
