As Simon said, in certain special circumstances selected GNU tools
related to networking have been granted exceptions. I suggest that such
a grant is not likely in the case of the general purpose code included
However, please bear in mind that I don't speak for FSF :)

All of the authors of third-party code would need to be contacted for a
linking exception, though from your last email it sounds like you have
already removed a substantial amount of the third-party code.
I have some availability this week. I could do a physical meeting or a
phone call during Wednesday and Thursday afternoon if you think it would
be useful. :)
