There isn't a license included, but that's an oversight I will
quickly remedy by contacting the author (also the author or xplot
and of xwatch, another package I'm doing).
I'm sure it'll be LGPL. That's what would be best, right?

No experience at all. And I have a lot to learn too.
For example, it only builds a libfli.a static library and no
dynamic library at all. Is this okay?
FYI, sources are ftp://ftp.icce.rug.nl/pub/unix/libfli-0.1.tar.gz
