So after looking, I find that lrmi.c is under this license:

  Copyright (C) 1998 by Josh Vanderhoof

  You are free to distribute and modify this file, as long as you do
  not remove this copyright notice and clearly label modified versions
  as being modified.

  This software has NO WARRANTY.  Use it at your own risk.

Which seems (to me anyway) to be GPL compatible. No big deal there.
The only questionable issue is the lack of labeling of modified
versions, albiet the only modification made to lrmi.c is the addition
of this line (oddly enough):

 diff lrmi.c lrmi.c.orig 
 < Original location: http://cvs.debian.org/lrmi/

So now I'm totally clueless as to why lrmi.c was even brought up,
besides the fact that someone hasn't done their licensing homework.

Anyway, I hope Andrea Mennucc and company have been able to make sense
of mplayer and can convince the ftpmasters that they have done so.

Tell me something interesting about yourself.
Lie if you have to.
