This is all irrelevant.  The GPL most definitely doesn't require us to  
ship the source code with the distribution.  It only requires us to  
provide the source code on demand.  And the license is clearly  
identified in the files.  So we have fulfilled both prongs of the GPL  
(identifying the license; providing access to the original source).

So I point you to the websites identified in those files to grab the  
source.  We have provided a way for you to "get the source" so we are  
in compliance.
