This came up a few years ago, but I don't think we ever did anything about it.
The whole manual is under the GFDL and thus so are the code samples inside it.
The sizable examples are maintained as plain C source files in the source tree.
So we could easily release those separately under the GPL.
The timeval_subtract function you asked about was not in such a file, but I've
just moved it into one.
We can look into making a separate package of these source files, where they
would be under the GPL.
Note, however, that the functionality you are looking for is also implemented
by the timersub macro in <sys/time.h> (where it is under the LGPL as usual).
