      Any idea why LLVM ended up as src/gnu/llvm?

        Mostly because we didn't want a new toplevel srcdir for big things.

        Note that perl already lives there even though it's obviously under the Autistic licence by OpenLSD standards.

          Whcih i critisized since it's confusing..... I asked about WHAT license was choosen some years ago. Is it realy so hard to add a directory? :-/

          For me it was confusing and I was not alone....

          Btw: Are you incorporating Changes from Bitrig? They once made similiar Changes and porting could be likely easier.

            You are confused easily... Let me add to that gnu is not what you think, in this context it now stands for "Gigantic and Nasty but
            Unavoidable"
