Review request for kdelibs.


For documentation, the current KDE docbook customization hard-codes a link to the GNU-FDL for every <legalnotice> in the doc. While the KDE licensing policy requires documentation to be licensed under the FDL, it does not prohibit dual-licensing (or triple or whatever...). But the current docbook processing doesn't show the second license.

This patch maintains current behavior when the <legalnotice> element includes the link to the FDL, but falls back to normal docbook processing for legal notices which do not reference the FDL.

Tested with Tellico's documentation, which is dual-licensed under the GNU FDL and the FreeBSD Documentation License. Also forwarded to the kde-docbook list
