Yes, with one known exception, the entire katamari is MIT licensed.

(The exception being the Linux portion of the xf86-input-keyboard driver,
 which has code that someone noticed was exactly the same as a GPL licensed
 file - but I don't think anyone ever asked the author, who was a XFree86
 contributor, if he had offered it to XFree86 under their MIT-style license,
 and just assumed it was copied from the GPL sources without permission.
 I'm occasionally tempted to solve it via "git rm src/lnx_*" and adding a
 "if $target_os = "linux" then echo Use evdev already" to configure.ac, but
 haven't yet cared enough to do so, since it doesn't affect any mainstream
 distro of Linux (which use evdev) or non-Linux (which don't use lnx_*.c).)

It does not - it builds a number of apps we still maintain, but do not include
in the katamaris, as well as some dependencies like mesa that are completely
outside the X.Org git repos & tarball releases.
