Also, re: libffi. There are many copyright holders. All but one (a major non-Red Hat contributor) agreed to sign assignment papers to the FSF many years ago. This was enough resistance to stall my efforts. In retrospect I'm glad this didn't happen, since it probably would have been relicensed under the current v3 runtime exception license.
I hope this is an honest mistake that the FSF can correct or clarify soon. I've reached out to them a while ago.
