No, that's a roughly description of GPL.  With the LGPL you're free to
do whatever you want to do -- you're only required to make public any
patches you did to the code you're using (ie, fixes and extensions to
racket itself), but your own code is yours.  (And Racket is using the
LGPL to *encourage* such uses.)
