It happens to be that Linux/Oracle developers working on
NFSv4 took FreeBSD RPC code and along with some modifications
relicensed all the code under a BSD license.
With Xin Li's help I have been able to find this commits:
The first commit says:
"Replace the Sun RPC license with the BSD license, with the explicit
permission of Sun Microsystems"
