I assume Apple had signed a copyright assignment to the FSF for all  
changes to GCC, moreover I checked
the modified GCC source code that Apple distributes and all the  
copyright notices on all files mention the
"Free Software Foundation Inc." as the copyright holder.

I guess that means the changes have already been assigned to the FSF  
and we're free to merge ? :-)
