-The GNU Autoconf Archive is a collection of more than 500 macros for
-GNU Autoconf that have been contributed as free software by friendly
-supporters of the cause from all over the Internet. Every single one of
-those macros can be re-used without imposing any restrictions whatsoever
-on the licensing of the generated configure script. In particular, it is
-possible to use all those macros in configure scripts that are meant for
-non-free software. This policy is unusual for a Free Software Foundation
-project. The FSF firmly believes that software ought to be free, and
-software licenses like the GPL are specifically designed to ensure that
-derivative work based on free software must be free as well. In case of
-Autoconf, however, an exception has been made, because Autoconf is at
-such a pivotal position in the software development tool chain that the
-benefits from having this tool available as widely as possible outweigh
-the disadvantage that some authors may choose to use it, too, for
-proprietary software.
