Default X license cleaning spree

Dear all,

I've started working on one of my to-do items that is usually very
low-priority : cleaning up X-related licenses in portage.


This is one of the last remains of the Xorg split from a few years ago.
X being a big hairy mess, those who managed the transition a few years
ago decided that each X package would have its own license file. Not
being a lawyer myself, I very much understand why they made that choice.


Now that the very few legal issues surrounding Xorg have been ironed
out, we can safely clean up all those license files into one : MIT.


So here's the list of license that I'm planning on killing because they
are - word for word - identical to MIT :


fontconfig
libdrm
libICE
libSM
libX11
libXau
libXaw
libXcomposite
libXcursor
libXdamage
libXdmcp
libXext
libXfixes
libXft
libXi
libXinerama
libXmu
libXp
libXpm
libXrandr
libXrender
libXScrnSaver
libXt
libXtst
libXv
libXvMC
libXxf86dga
libXxf86vm
X11

And here's a list of packages that use one or more of these licenses.
Please let me know if/when you've fixed them. I'll open bugs next week
for the remaining packages, and I'll just fix the rest myself within a
month.


app-editors/emacs
app-editors/emacs-cvs
app-emulation/emul-linux-x86-xlibs
app-i18n/atokx2
app-i18n/atokx3
app-misc/srm
app-text/docbook-sgml-dtd
app-text/docbook-xml-dtd
app-text/docbook-xml-simple-dtd
dev-java/jal
dev-libs/libpthread-stubs
dev-ml/findlib
dev-perl/X11-Protocol
games-arcade/pydance
games-arcade/pydance-songs
media-fonts/efont-unicode
media-fonts/sgi-fonts
media-gfx/xli
media-libs/nas
net-misc/curl
x11-libs/agg
x11-libs/libsvg-cairo
x11-libs/openmotif
x11-libs/openmotif-compat
x11-misc/gbdfed
x11-misc/googleearth
x11-misc/sux
x11-terms/hanterm
x11-terms/kterm
x11-themes/gentoo-xcursors

Help will be most appreciated

Cheers,

Rémi
