+- Also, I want to clarify one point. If you build a toolchain with crosstool-NG
+ and you happen to sell, deliver, or otherwise publish this toolchain to a
+ third party, I consider crosstool-NG as being part of the sources needed to
+ rebuild the afore-mentioned toolchain, alongside with all other source code
+ that third party is otherwise entitled to receive, due to other licenses of

+ In short: crosstool-NG is the part refered to as "the scripts to control
+ compilation and installation of the exectuable", it being the toolchain in
+ our case; and as such you must make it available, in conformance to the
+ GPLv2, see above.
