FYI, there is some uncertainty as to whether a non-GPL program compiled by Path64 can be legally distributed. Some parts of the compiler are licensed as GPL without the GCC Exception.

There's really no doubt or question here and wasting time going to SFLC is or should be unnecessary. At the time of the announcement not everything was public. This was a result of Phoronix leaking it early and catching us off guard.

Please check the README for path64-suite for everything to clone and see that the licenses on the runtimes are *NOT* GPLv3.
