[racket-dev] Using licensed code

I'm cribbing from the Boost C++ libraries [*] for much of the `math' 
collection. The license is extremely liberal, requiring only that the 
text of the license be included in any source distribution.

What's the protocol for this?

FWIW, the FSF says Boost libraries and works derived from it can be 
relicensed as LGPL.

[*] Unfortunately, the `science' collection has a license problem: the 
stated license (LGPL) at the top any of its files can't be the actual 
license if the file was derived from the Gnu Science Library (GSL), 
which is GPL. Most of the files I'm interested in converting to Typed 
Racket are from the GSL.
