I was going to answer with
however in a recent discussion on the -current list
Brooks Davis <brooks at freebsd.org> said
"This file is outdated. While this remains our prefered license, the
OpenBSD prefered license is the ISC licesed which is allowed by the license
policy we published to developers last year. We should probably replace

I'd ask for a copy of the current policy on freebsd-current@ if you dont
get any answers here.
