Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 144335
libelf packages mislicenced.

Description of problem:
The elfutils-libelf and elfutils-libelf-devel packages are mislicenced
in Fedora Core 3. They should be GPL, and are licensed OSL (which is
correct for elfutils and elfutils-devel, but NOT for elfutils-libelf
elfutils (or at least portions) is dual licensed, OSL is preferred.
Unless RPM is licensed OSL, then having libelf as OSL is a violation
of the GPL. I further clarified with the author of libelf that indeed,
that portion of code was GPL and never OSL.
elfutils-0.99-2 built exactly as requested.
Anything else should be dealt with through channels other than bugzilla,
