Have you looked on said part?
You must do one of these things:
Use a suitable shared library mechanism for linking with the Library. A suitable mechanism is one that (1) uses at run time a copy of the library already present on the user's computer system, rather than copying library functions into the executable, and (2) will operate properly with a modified version of the library, if the user installs one, as long as the modified version is interface-compatible with the version that the work was made with.
If user can somehow install library then it must be used. If user have no means to install the library, then it's user's problem, not a developer's problem. That's why I've said "it's your problem, really": LGPL2.1 does not cover this case at all.
