I'm using the -mno-cygwin and -mwindows options to compile my program. I'm
also binding to several other windows libs such as -lwsock32. I want to
distribute my programs--as well as source--entirely public domain. The
copyright on all of the mingw libraries seems to be public domain, so I'm ok
there. But looking at the windows libraries in the source, some of them have
copyrights such as winsup/sysdef/wsock32.def:
; Exports for WSOCK32 DLL
; Copyright (C) 1996 Free Software Foundation, Inc.
; Author: Scott Christley <email@example.com>
; Date: 1996
; This file is part of the Windows32 API Library.

Does this mean that if I use -mwindows/-lwsock32 I either have to distribute
my program under GNU, or write my own .def's for windows API? (which I
imagine would be a minor pain)
