There is a license statement inside the header files, but indeed it says:
 * Permission to use, copy, modify, and distribute this software
 * and its documentation for NON-COMMERCIAL purposes and without
 * fee is hereby granted provided that this copyright notice
 * appears in all copies.

The NON-COMMERCIAL explains why Trolltech can't ship it with Qt in general,
but shipping it with KDE sounds fine indeed (although this paragraph doesn't 
constitute legal advice from me, blah blah...)
