there has been extensive discussion on this with the original authors
(*all* copyrightholders) of [expr] (most of it forwarded/CCed to this
list), and IIRC correctly the final result as that expr has been
re-licensed under the LGPL.
for me this means that the code *is* LGPL, even if on load the
splashscreen says that it is BSD4 or the microsoft EULA.

but of course it is annoying to have contradictory license information
staring at your face (esp. when you have to argue with someone like
apple), so i suggest to fix the headers and the printout.

please file a bug-report (eventually including a patch that does the fixing)
