You modified two things:

First you changed the preprocessor include statements. That would
require patching each update, but, as I wrote in my previous post, that
is acceptable for me.

Second you added "$(INCPRE)$(top_srcdir)/include/contrib" to some
Makedefs. This however is dangerous. It may unintentionally add non-BSD
code to an application. I think it is more important to help users to
keep their code BSDL-clean than to help them adding GPL'ed code.

To clarify:

Yes, header files contain licensed code. (Just in case this is not clear
to everyone.)

No, this is no real problem right now, but adding the contrib path now
may provide problems when adding more contribs in the future.
