[snip to end]
Many thanks for the links, we (ClanLib dev's) will have a look at the end of November.
It seems that the current clanlib tarball "may" contain unlicenced material. Inside the resources directory contains images taken from Microsoft Windows Vista window frames (For use in the ClanLib examples - see http://www.clanlib.org/gfx/screenshots/large/gui_1.png - that displays indentically on linux)
This "may" be conflicting with the "Windows Vista EULA"
  c. Icons, images and sounds. While the software is running, you may use but not share its icons, images, sounds, and media.
In my personal opinion, to be safe, the resources directory in it's current form should not be packaged on linux.
I would be grateful if anyone could confirm that this is the case?
I suppose it depends if wine or kde/gnome vista desktop themes allow it.
