Yes, but a user might choose to link against METIS for their personal
use. The problem only comes into play if they then want to distribute
that binary, as METIS is not distributable in the sense of the GPL. Also
note that I believe PMETIS (not METIS) has a non-commercial use
condition on it as well..
