I had pointed to that in another email.
The main problem is that the pkgsrc user can't quickly know. Even the
show-license target seems wrong: it suggests packaging it up and then
running pkg_info -d to figure it out.
I'll fix part of the problem by uploading a license/lame-license based on
all the notes I found. And then fix the LICENSE line to use lame-license
