That would sound like 'private use' to me which is permitted by the
GPL. If the client later wanted to *distribute* the agglomerated work
the GPL would apply. Distribution being the key point, as at that
stage the client is no longer using the agglomeration privately.
 insert the usual caveats for 'interpretation' - I'm not a lawyer,
your mileage may vary, etcetera. Similar the limits on 'client' would
need some definition vis-a-vis distribution, one person would surely
be fine, extrapolating up to multi-national companies I'm not sure.
