I see the following in that ticket:

    GPL -  Copyright Free Software Foundation, Inc.
      build/config.guess 
      build/config.sub

    ????? - Copyright X Consortium
      build/install-sh

I don't rightly know what to do about config.guess and config.sub;
they're essential parts of the autoconf system, so we (currently) can't
really build without them -- but their GPL does not affect the compiled
code, so that should be OK. Note that at least APR has these two files,
under the same license, in the same place in their tree.

For install-sh, we could probably replace it with APR's install.sh. The
latter is also based on the X consortium's original, but modified and
mogrified, and it now says it's subject to the Apache license.

I'm testing the Subversion build now to see if it works with APR's
install.sh, and will switch over if everything appears to be OK.
