This is correct. MIT X license contains very similar language, and in
fact prior to choosing Apache license for Jini, Sun was leaning
stronger towards the MIT license...

Additionally, AFAIK, the license restrictions applies to
'distribution' and not for 'usage'. So, if for instance, the above
tool would have been GPL (clearly prohibited) but only needed as a
tool to build the source, then we list this as a System Requirement
(similar to an operating system or a compiler) with instructions for
the downstream user how to obtain it.
