   The Foundation agrees that all of its distributions of the Transferred
   Work, or of any work "based on the Transferred Work" (that is any work 
   that in whole or in part incorporates or is derived from all or part of 
   the Transferred Work), shall be under a version of the Foundation's 
   General Public License,  Lesser General Public License or Library 
   General Public License (collectively "LGPL").

Nothing about copyright holder status so it doesn't change anything,
the FSF is the copyright holder of all the code that goes into GCC
(including several other projects).  Feel free to grep through the GCC
source code.
