Considering the reported problems: by now both Stealth and Bisonc++ have their
licenses changed into the GPL, and the bobcat library has its license changed
into the Lesser General Public License.
The change of license is announced in GPG signed `errata' files that can be
found at the current file releases of stealth (errata-1.43), bisonc++
(errata-1.02) and bobcat (errata-1.9.0). At the next release of these
packages their new license will of course be an integral part of their
source and binary distributions.
