If it's being included in the main GRASS tree, it would be simpler to
relicense it as GPL.

The main thing is to ensure that each file has a header stating that
it is licensed under the LGPL. In the absence of such a header, we
can't reasonably assume that any additions to the code are licensed
under the LGPL.
