src/distrib/notes/{common/legal.common,<arch>/legal}, actually, it
appears. Which makes it even more ugly, since things change based on the
architecture in question.... (well, the values do, at least).

There is, however, no way to separate out the pieces of the list, as far as
it appears right now. Hmmm. I wonder if including the entire list in the
copyright file, and providing a pointer to it, would qualify as acceptable.
A question for -legal, I guess. Maybe it's time I asked there, since I now
at least know where to find the entire set of stuff, and that it can't be
put together 'on the fly' to exclude irrelevant pieces.

I don't think it's practical for me, at least, to go asking them. If
someone else thinks they can carry that discussion, more power to them.
