I'd rather leave the copy in gnulib as-is.  Several existing projects
need a GPL'ed version, and it's a hassle if they have to convert it to
LGPL on the fly.  The default should be to cater to this more-common
case.  Also, the default should be the "safer" (i.e., more
conservative) GPL rather than the "riskier" (i.e., more permissive)

Perhaps you could modify gnulib-tool to add an option to change the
GPL to LGPL for minmax.h, for the projects that need the LGPL'ed
version?  That way, the package could specify which license it needs,
with the default being the current behavior.
