Section 3 of the Lesser GPL (v2.1) states:

  3. You may opt to apply the terms of the ordinary GNU General Public
License instead of this License to a given copy of the Library.  To do
this, you must alter all the notices that refer to this License, so
that they refer to the ordinary GNU General Public License, version 2,
instead of to this License.  (If a newer version than version 2 of the
ordinary GNU General Public License has appeared, then you can specify
that version instead if you wish.)  Do not make any other change in
these notices.

Note that one of my tasks with libiberty (since it and gnulib will
likely merge) is to sort the files so that it's clear which components
are GPL and which are LGPL.
