So the man page can not be re-distributed unless as part of "a product
or program"? What's "a product", then? Is whatever LFS is doing "a
product"? (To be absurd: If I sell a box of milk from my own cows (= a
product developed by me), may I also redistribute parts of Sun RPC?)
I give up - I am (obviously) no good at licenses.
Sorry to waste everybody's time.
