Of course, the developer who owns the LGPL-licensed copyright is free to

There are no original developers in the project now and I don't know
where or how they are now. I personally am not so eager to change the
license to BSD because it has been LGPL too long.

Yes, that is a problem for releasing old code whose developers are long
gone.  (What I was thinking was copying *new* code from psqlodbc into

What do you mean by *new* code?
New line?, word? or other kind of classification?

Oppositely I thought
we can implement the BSD licensed autoconf macros by ourselves but I'm
not sure how it can be considered as *not derived*.

ISTM it would be necessary to get legal advice to be sure that it would
be considered not derived, but one would think that that's too much
hassle for something that can be done much more simply by including the
differently-licensed files in the first place, which is legal anyway.

OK I understand.
