This is simply not true. According to the GPL-FAQ at fsf.org, if you are
using libraries licensed under the GPL, you must use a GPL-compatible
license to use those libraries in your on software. The (modified) BSD
license is compatible with the GPL. 

Compatible here "means you can combine a module which was released under that
license with a GPL-covered module to make one larger program."
