Ed,

It maybe worth the effort to ask your questions to other embedded lists
too, as my reading of all of these responses, makes me wonder, has not
someone else already discovered and publish a list at some point in time.

For example maybe at Linux From Scratch they advise on what softwares
and codes to use, depending on what you are building up. Or maybe
open embedded ?

It just seems like this question should be solved and already documented
somewhere? With dozens (hundreds) of commercial linux distros, surely
they list licenses for codes they include therein?

Maybe some research on what google has published on the licenses it 
encounters via the Android packages? Some of the BSD embedded
projects might also be a good source of information.

hth,
James
