I think this question can be better answered by either FX (François-Xaver
Coudert) or by the GCC steering committee.
There's not much I can add to what Tobias has quoted. Toon, or someone else
from the SC,
may want to confirm in a public mail that we're in the clear.
The libquadmath library has to be under the LGPL because the code FX derived it
from (in glibc) was donated to the FSF by its author for distribution under the
RMS confirmed that it would be OK - as long as libquadmath is distributed with
GCC under the LGPL and in a separate library (Tobias quoted this text).
I hope this clarifies.
I think we are good to go for commit. (This really is a significant contribution
and should be recognized)
Many thanks to FX and Tobias.
