it looks like ghc itself is under a BSD3 style license, if thats any help.
So per se, I think you can assume youre dealing with a BSD3 through and
see here for the ghc info
(this is something i've been sorting out for my own projects too, and to
the best of my knowledge its all bsd3)
admission: I'm actually likely to be providing a repackaging of ghc & the
haskell platform with some additional tools for data analysis / machine
learning to some enterprise customers come the fall, so thats why I have
any thoughts on this matter. (but bear in mind that folks are this list
aren't lawyers :) )
