Thanks, but your argument suggests that my original idea was wrong,
since it would mean that files like lib/warn-on-use.h would be
distributed without copyright notices.
If I'm not mistaken, warn-on-use.h is LGPLv2+, and all the files
it's copied into are either LGPLv2+, or LGPLv3+, or GPL2+, or GPL3+,
and all the files in question are copyright FSF,
so it's OK to copy warn-on-use.h's contents into these files while
stripping the copyright notice.
Still, it would be nice if the makefile rule didn't need to
create a file that is a copy of warn-on-use.h, but without
its copyright notice. This could be done, I expect, by
having 'sed' read the original warn-on-use.h, and having
it pipe its output through another 'sed' that removes
unnecessary copyright notices.
