The following replacement headers are all under LGPL instead of LGPLv2+

You need the agreement of all contributors since 2007-10-28: When we
switched the implicit meaning of "LGPL" on that date, we promised that
all changes up until then could be reverted to LGPLv2+ on demand.
The non-trivial contributors since 2007-10-28 are, according to 'git':
fcntl-h you, me, Paolo
getopt-posix you, me, glibc
inttypes you, me, Paul
locale you, me
math you, me, Ben Pfaff
pty you, me
search you, me
spawn you, me
For the record, I'm okay with my contributions being relaxed
I'm OK with mine too.
glibc is still under LGPLv2+.
So you still need the agreement of Paolo, Paul, and Ben.
