It's nicest if you can map each license back to an individual one in the
tree. People generally ignore the build system when doing that. When
doing the licensing thing, the way things seem to go in Gentoo is to get
the actual license language mapped to a license file but ignore any
differences in copyright ownership (e.g., Stanford vs X Consortium).
