The point is that LGPL code (alsa, gtk) is optional, and if you build Classpath
with one of those optional components, the license *for the combination as a
whole* is necessarily GPL+exception and LGPL. If you explicitly require an LGPL
package, you don't have that option. My understanding is that the LGPL doesn't
permit relicensing unless the license is the GPL itself.

This is feeling a little bikeshed at the moment, and I don't generally have
anything against using a portable runtime library for the native code. Using
glib sounds like it has issues, and the target for the classpath native code
was notionally POSIXy platforms.
