No, that sounds like it might be a bug in gnulib-tool for not re-writing
the header license.  Would you like to help investigate?  ALL
gnulib-installed files should have their headers rewritten to match the
intersection of the module license and the requested license of the
gnulib-tool invocation; and modules/snippet/c++defs says that it is
indeed under the LGPLv2+ license.
