I need the following modules to be usable in a LGPLv2 project:

Libidn: gettext-h stdint striconv strverscmp
Gsasl: base64 crypto/gc crypto/gc-hmac-md5 crypto/gc-hmac-md5-tests
 crypto/gc-md5 crypto/gc-md5-tests crypto/gc-random crypto/gc-tests
 getline gettext maintainer-makefile strdup strverscmp vasprintf
GnuTLS: crypto/gc crypto/gc-arcfour crypto/gc-arctwo crypto/gc-des
 crypto/gc-hmac-md5 crypto/gc-md2 crypto/gc-md4 crypto/gc-md5
 crypto/gc-pbkdf2-sha1 crypto/gc-random crypto/gc-rijndael crypto/gc-sha1
 getpass gettext memmem memmove minmax read-file snprintf socklen stdint
 strverscmp sys_socket sys_stat time_r unistd vasprintf
Libntlm: check-version des des-tests maintainer-makefile md4 md4-tests
 strdup strverscmp unistd

I'm not sure about libidn, I haven't been following whether glibc is
going to be upgraded to LGPLv3 or not.  Will it?  Libidn is part of
libc, so it makes sense for it to use only LGPLv2 helpers if glibc will
remain LGPLv2.

I moving today, so I don't have time to go through them and check who is
the owner etc.  I'll see if I find time later this week.  Unless someone
else beats me to it...
