http://www.troll.no/free-license.html explicitly mentions
:This is the license of the version 1 series of Qt Free Edition. 

Troll's webpages are inconsistent at the moment
(http://www.troll.no/announce/qt-200.html refers to http://www.troll.no/dl/
refers to http://www.troll.no/dl/qtfree-dl.html but that's partially about 1
and partially about 2) and thus confusing.

The 2.0 tarball has a doc/license.html which is the QPL
(http://www.troll.no/qpl/) which is DFSG-free.
