My impression is that the FOSS license exemption is only for works
licensed under terms that would otherwise be incompatible with the
GPL.  Tor is BSD, so it does not have to make use of the exemption.

This clause, then, just operates as a warning that ntru-crypto can not
change the license of other GPL'd works.
