Improper subject, wrong attitude. If one wishes to use a license from another product that is outside of the BSD license scope, then follow it properly. FreeBSD ( && personnel) does a magnificent job of keeping outside-licensed code and objects separate from itself, and I'd rather jump through burning hoops of flame to 'add on' to the system to mend it to my needs, as opposed to having the system, and possibly its users, face legal ramifications later... If you need outside software that requires reading any sort of an 'Agreement', then follow the 'Agreement' until you get rights to use the software. FreeBSD isn't about 'easy'. It's about 'right'. Installation methods print out information about external licenses for a reason. Ask those external places how to get around their sign-ups...don't ask here. For that matter, don't answer such questions here, either.
