Where have you heard this? It's come up on the list more than once, and
each time it was explained. And if you check the source
(ftp://ftp.gnu.org/pub/gnu/glibc/glibc-2.1-README) you'll find reference
to political, not copyright, problems. (I.e., some gnu people don't like
promoting egcs instead of the GNU cc)
