At the bottom of the COPYING file in libXfont, it says the following:

The license doesn't give any explicit permission to use, modify, etc.
However, I can't find any file with that license in libXfont, so it
might be outdated. Above that is another unclear statement:
written by Mark Eichin <address@hidden> September 1996.
intended for inclusion in X11 public releases. */"
That is included in src/fontfile/gunzip.c.
xproto has the same unclear license as the first one, but actually
does have it in one of it's files, Xdefs.h.
