So, I'm curious here: why would you need a non-copyleft license for a
*test suite*?  The test suite is, after all, meant to test for
compliance in a C library.  Just because the test suite is copyleft
doesn't mean that your C library has to be.  The only thing it means is
that you'd have to release modifications to that compliance test suite
*if* you distribute the compliance test suite it to others.
