Theres an interesting discussion going on as to whether Microchip Inc is
allowed by the GPL to licence linker scripts and some other scripts (their
code, not based on a GPL'ed code) when these scripts are all distributed as
part of the MPLAB C30, which is a C compiler, based on the GNU CC (gcc) 3.3,
which obviously *is* covered by the GPL.
Can someone knowledgeable cut to the chase and put us right on what the
situation is in this case? How about Richard Stallman? Is he available?
(Just kidding, but it would be nice to hear from the man himself).
