If there's that many without a license, this will just throw builds
into chaos without helping much.

A recent bulk pkglint run yielded 5364 instances of
   ERROR:  Each package must define its LICENSE.

which given various pkglint issues probably means the real number is
~5000 or so.

If anyone can think of an effective way to move these forward, we
should probably do it...
