Libcdio doesn't violate any license, but it's GPL, while Sun doesn't
want GPL'ed libraries in Solaris. GPL for libraries is very restrictive.
In fact, everything you link against libcdio will have all restrictions
applied by the GPL license, even if that software is LGPL.

Please stop spreading this nonsense.
