Re: Files with unclear licenses in non-free

It has no license headers, it is not mentioned in the LICENSE file and 
http://www.emutalk.net/showthread.php?t=45564 seems to indicate that 
mupen64plus developers don't know the license situation either.
Summary: Orkin (developler of glN64) put source code online some years ago 
without any further license informations. Mupen64Plus included it in their 
repository and developed it further without changing something on the license 
informations. Arachnoid forked glN64 and has GPL boiler plates - mupen64plus 
developers doubt that this is legal. Nobody was successful at contacting Orkin 
and thus the license situation is not quite clear.

I am not sure how to compile that compiler or even get the sources (it was 
egcc with some patches or so). So it is unmaintained stuff without a central 
website (if somebody knows a working, open-source and well maintained project 
then please create a rfp).
