liblinebreak license



I may need to package liblinebreak, as it seems that new versions of
fbreader will use it. Thought I'd run the licenses past legal, though
I think I've convinced myself they are free.

The main license is BSD-ish:

    7  * Copyright (C) 2008 Wu Yongwei <wuyongwei at gmail dot com>

    9  * This software is provided 'as-is', without any express or implied
   10  * warranty.  In no event will the author be held liable for any damages
   11  * arising from the use of this software.
   12  *
   13  * Permission is granted to anyone to use this software for any purpose,
   14  * including commercial applications, and to alter it and redistribute
   15  * it freely, subject to the following restrictions:

   17  * 1. The origin of this software must not be misrepresented; you must
   18  *    not claim that you wrote the original software.  If you use this
   19  *    software in a product, an acknowledgement in the product
   20  *    documentation would be appreciated but is not required.
   21  * 2. Altered source versions must be plainly marked as such, and must
   22  *    not be misrepresented as being the original software.
   23  * 3. This notice may not be removed or altered from any source
   24  *    distribution.

It also includes a file linebreakdata.c [1]
