I just had a quick look at kinfocenter1's copyright issues pointed out by 
Krazy, and apparently they still haven't been fixed -- furthermore, some small 
files, such as Modules/memory/memory_{fbsd,linux,netbsd,...}.{cpp,h} don't 
even have a copyright header at all.

I'll see if it works fine on FreeBSD later.
