That is an error. And as Mark said, it'll be fixed. The Classpath
license page clearly says otherwise:
http://www.gnu.org/software/classpath/license.html

So does the LICENSE file included in the GNU Classpath distribution.
Also the GPL exeption is present in all of the 3100+ source files that
are part of Classpath.

It's the GPL with an exception. It grants a lot of rights the GPL does
not. But don't nit-pick over typos on webpages.
