I've heard that NetBSD folks have found it possible to get in touch w/
folks @ UC re: legal stuff (e.g., getting a written confirmation of
the msg in the URL you posted).
The other thing that might be investigated, is updating the base gprof
The gprof sources as they went out in net/2 (IIRC), Lite, Lite2, etc.,
all had the new 4-clause license on them. I don't think it'd be TRT
to just copy said license on to the old gprof source, but if you can
'upgrade' the old gprof source base to the new gprof source base,
well, you get the new license too.
