I saw in the latest change we had to testing/radare2 that the license
got changed to LGPLv3, and even tho there's a copy of that one, there's
this doc that explains there are GPL-only bits on the source code [0].

So I wrote to pancake[1] on their IRC channel and told me:

> 07:04 < r2tg> <pancake> you can also build only the non-gpl plugins
> 07:04 < r2tg> <pancake> and make a separate pkg for the gpl ones

So we either re-license the full distributed binaries as GPL or we would
have to make the split.

I would say just ship it as GPL; tho that makes another question for me
at least: how do we double-license something? In debian there's an
specific file under `debian/` for this but how should be made in alpine?
