Don't know if there were an official Some links that may be interesting:

compatible with GPLv3?"
Apple and some other companies made the switch from gcc to llvm some
years ago, in Apple case, because gnu/fsf forced to make all
objective-c compiler developed by Apple for gcc open source, because
gcc was GPL (http://www.informit.com/articles/article.aspx?p=1390172)
Resuming, or my resume, GPLv3 is politically incorrect for a BSD
project, it's preferred BSD tools, made by BSD community for BSD
community and (as licence allows it) by extension everyone than GPLv3
tools made for GNU/FSF and (as licence don't permit share) only for them.
