Go read the gnulib documentation.  Many modules are provided dual-license,
including the stdint module.  The files in the lib directory state GPL for
convenience, since the bulk of current gnulib users are GPL'd programs.
But the modules directory states the true license of each file, and when
you use 'gnulib-tool --lgpl --import <modules>', gnulib-tool either
rewrites the files to have an LGPL header as part of copying them from
gnulib to your project directory, or fails because the modules you
requested were not licensed under LGPL.
