We prefer the GPL+LE license for run-time libraries and header files, but I think we could also add the BSD-3-Clause licensed header files to the SDCC distribution since it is GPL compatible (see http://www.gnu.org/licenses/license-list.html#GPLCompatibleLicenses). I yust don't know where they fit better: should they be in standard "include" or in "non-free/include" directory? I'd appreciate the opinion from a debian guru: what is the debian policy regarding this?

Subject: SDCC S08 headers

I apologize for spamming everyone, but I was not sure who was the right 
person for this request.

I have been working for several months with freescale to get them to 
re-lincese all the S08 headers in an open source compatible license so 
they can be added to the sdcc distribution.

Their current proposal is to use BSD clause 3.

Is this acceptable for inclusion in the sdcc distribution?
