not really understood this.
if anyone commits any code under this
license into the tree
into what tree? gcc tree or FreeBSD tree?
FreeBSD has it's own copy of gcc so any change in gcc doesn't
automatically change FreeBSD code and licencing.
Can you explain it more precisely privately? thanks

the right way is to use best performing tools as long as no law problems
