   Pardon me, but I haven't followed this discussion closely enough. Could
   anyone please tell me in two or three words why it is illegal to distribute
   KDE which is GPLed but linked to a non-free library, but not illegal to
   distribute an Emacs binary linked against (for instance) SUN's libc, which
   isn't free either.

Because Sun's libc is included with Sun's operating system.  This is
an explicit exception listed in the GPL.
