If the license is LGPL, commercial use is permitted. Since the text of the LGPL license itself is copyrighted by the Free Software Foundation, you cannot change the license to exclude commercial use and still call it LGPL - you have to give your license a different name, like "Custom License X" (just as you cannot make your own facial tissue and call it Kleenex). So, the license is either LGPL (which permits commercial use) or Custom License X (which may or may not permit commercial use based on a knowledgeable reading of the language).
