Indeed, octave-gpc is released under the GNU GPL.  However, octave-gpc
links against the General Polygon Clipping Library
(http://www.cs.man.ac.uk/aig/staff/alan/software/gpc.html), which has a
non-free license.  I already approached the upstream author several times
asking him to change the license terms, but he is not willing to do it.

I packaged the GPC library for Debian.  You can find it at:
