I am not sure what "MIT based stuff" means, but I just did a grep on
everything in build.sh
and I see no GNU General Public License except for mesa, which is not an
X.Org module.

The latest LICENSING is here:
It does not say anything about about GNU GPL. I just recall some
discussion on the list to the effect
that this license is too restrictive.

The problem I see with it's inclusion in build.sh is that it is error
prone from a maintenance point of view.
How is anyone supposed to know this module is different from all the
other ones. Updating COPYING is different,
the standard README would probably not point to X.Org, and so on.

I started upgrading the configuration with some standard pre-reviewed
xorg stuff, 
so I will probably have to revert the patches.

Build.sh contains more than a katamari. It's all xorg modules +
and a number modules that are not in high demand or near obsolete.
