Well, it's up to the project to decide whether or not a push for
re-licensing makes sense. Claiming simgear is available under the terms
of the LGPL is pretty certainly incorrect, though.

AFAIK these are compatible to (L)GPL, so you could still state that
simgear is available "under the terms of the (L)GPL" for the entire
project. Since neither the MIT nor the Expat licens add restrictions
beyond those of the LGPL.

Mind you, though, IANAL.
