| GNU Make, autoconf, mysql, PostgreSQL, etc etc.  While it can be argued

| objective c, libreadline, cvs, diff, tar, sort, patch and friends?

I think PostgreSQL is released under BSD license.
I can't find a line in tar's man page that it is GNU's tar.
Apache's testing platform is FreeBSD. So probably it is release under
BSD license. Will have to check it out though.
