Summary0000513: mygetopt.h licensing terms are outdated (NetBSD moved from BSD-4-Clause to BSD-2-Clause)
Description currently reports the BDS-4-Clause licensing terms, including the problematic advertising clause.

However the NetBSD foundation relicensed everything to the BSD-2-Clause in 2008, see (the file has a CVS id from 2007).

They also state that "Third parties are encouraged to change the license on any files which have a 4-clause license contributed to the NetBSD Foundation to a 2-clause license." so it would be nice to update the licensing terms of the affected file, to make the life of licensing auditors slightly easier. :D
Steps To ReproduceJust check src/mygetopt.h
