This should only be the case in the PPP sources. That is because
they were copied from pppd (ppp.samba.org) and of course we cannot
change their license. This should cover files under 'src/netif/ppp'
and 'src/include/netif/ppp'.

As long as you don't use PPP, you could just remove the files from
your copy and be fine.
