[DebianGIS] Mapserver + AGG == /o\

I was looking into integration of AGG into Mapserver 5.0.

Houston we have a problem :-/

First of all current AGG 2.5 is GPL which is a problem for Mapserver BSD license. 
You all know that I like dealing with license issues but enough is enough :-(
The other secondary issue is that it builds (WTH???) only a static
library, and that would require a fix.

Easy (silly) solution: using 2.4 which is essentially the same 2.5 with
a BSD friendly license, embedding the library in Mapserver.

Other solution: asking upstream of issuing a FLOSS expection to be
added to the GPL plain license, and of course patching to have 
a shared library.

You all know what is the solution I would prefer :)
