This is a minor license issue - trivial to fix.

LCDproc uses Marc Martinec's snprintf implementation.
Marc changed the License of the code a few times, and the version that went into LCDproc happened to be licensed under the terms of the "Frontier Artistic License".
This Artistic license is GPL incompatible.

I suggest, we upgrade to the latest version of Marc's snprintf code, which is dual licensed under Artistic and GPL.

Here is a patch that updates lcdproc-0.5.1 to Marc's latest code.

    Thanks for pointing at it.
    It will be fixed in CVS.

    (Unfortunately it did not make it into 0.5.2
    which I released a few minutes before checking
    the SF page ;-)
