The copy in gnulib/lib/ CVS says GPL.  Can we re-import the LGPL
version from glibc?  I recall writing strdup.h, and I'm fine with
relicensing it under LGPL.

Before asking Richard, I think I need to have a concrete question.
Right now, I need strdup and minmax.h in LGPL projects.  strdup is
already available under LGPL.  Who are the authors of minmax.h?  What
are your feelings about re-licensing it under LGPL?  If there is a
problem, I'll ask RMS if he believe it could be made available under
LGPL (and perhaps other files, for similar reasons), or ultimately
rewrite it (and the other files).
