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.
