Now that we seem to go to a more or less official release of a native 
windows port, I wanted to raise a question concerning our distributing 
external library binaries with the grass binaries.

As they are all (?) GPL, it should not be any problem to distribute 
them, but I guess we need to include some more information about 
copyright/left, or ? Should I add a copyright file to the distribution 
which lists the information ? What would need to be in it ?

Currently, there is README.extralibs which for each library contains the 
link to its homepage and an explanation of how it was compiled. Maybe 
that is enough ?
