I would say the license of the build tool doesn't affect the license of 
the built product.

It may not work the other way round. Build system could possibly qualify 
as a derivative work, which means it should inherit the LGPL.

In any case, I suggest asking Artem to change the license to LGPL first 
to prevent confusion about 0MQ licensing. It shouldn't be a problem as 
there are no practical consequences of GPL vs. LGPL for a non-library.
