is intended to be LGPL, but is somehow GPL-poluted while
there has been spent a lot of time and efforts to make
the newer LGPLed uClibc "GPL free"!?

Anyway, i don't think that is realy a problem as
the customers can choose the new (and true LGPL) uClibc
either in the distro and with the toolchain, just in case
if there are legal issues on the older uC-libc (which is
also LGPL by definition)
