Based on the licence audit Branden did. I don't remember all of it, and GLX is indeed problematic,
but many of the other problems where 4-clause BSD licences dating from a long time, and which Berkley has since then asked everyone to change to the 3-clause licence, or code that was not really used anymore (like the font compress related stuff).
i think that this is another bogus issue you are bringing up. you seem to skirt real issues and bring up your own agenda, which obviously is very self-serving. but that's what trolls do isn't it?
