Then that needs to be noted somewhere in the port, preferably in some
kind of file. (I don't know if we have any paradigm for this yet).
My point is that we can't be in the habit of assuming such things are

An upcoming portmgr initiative is to sweep the tree for questionable
licensing situations and fix them. Let's start identifying them now,
including the ones where we have been given permission like this.
