Since you link statically, the whole binary package is GPLv3 since GPLv3 
is not compatible to v2. For the source distribution it's up to each 
individual source file.

IMO it would be wiser to put mio GPLv2+ also. If it's ever packaged 
separately it can be changed to GPLv3.

OTOH I don't suppose you sue each other for GPLv2 vs GPLv3 issues, do 
you? :)

Best regards.
