Going through the list provided by Bruno:

> currently under GPL license:

> <math.h> functions:

>  acosl, asinl, atanl, cosl, expl, logl, sinl, sqrtl, tanl

These modules all seem to come from Bruno, and the C for these appear
to be under a license from Sun that says "do whatever you like, just
reproduce this copyright notice", so Bruno could relicense them LGPL.
