Re: maybe-ITP: bsdiff
Could it be distributed in kit form? That is, could it require the toold
to build it, and be built in the postinstall script?
IANAL, but copyright licenses are not intended to restrict what you do
privately. Since nobody is distributing the resulting binary, this is legal,
but it would be a real PITA, especially if the the end user were to modify
the toolchain for some reason it may bork the build. Even just setting
certain environment variables is likely to be sufficient to break building
BTW: this sounds much like the gentoo system of packages.
