I'm being a little liberal with my use of the term GNU. I think of
anything covered the the GPL as GNUish. libc and the compiler are GNU.
bash and many(most?) of the shell utilities are GNU. GIMP, Gnome and
a number of other large applications are GNU. Flavour it how you like,
I don't think running apache or sendmail makes the operating system any
less GNU.

Most of what the LDP documents is not Linux, but stuff that uses Linux.
