I wonder why this code is copyrighted Cagney and not the FSF, since
I thought that one requirement for pushing to the FSF tree was
assigning your changes to the FSF. Not sure what to do next...

Regardless, there is a COPYING at the root of the sources, so perhaps
we can rely on version 2 of the license being available there.

Fixed most of them.  I haven't had time to look at gpl.texi yet,
so I have no idea what this file is used for yet.  I suspect that
we should have updated that file too.
