According to one-of-those-well-known techie rumour sites on the net, Oracle has relicensed the SUN RPC code which previously had an inconvenient term:
" ... Users
* may copy or modify Sun RPC without charge, but are not authorized
* to license or distribute it to anyone else except as part of a product or
* program developed by the user.

New Oracle license looks like a 3-Clause BSD License.
