Ok, I'm not sure.  Others files licence is CDDL, at least I have heared that a 
binary can't use sources with mixed CDDL and GPL.

There are also OSes which exclude GPL software.  But the mention of a FSF 
copyright has nothing to do with GPL--right?

The last sounds good :)

For me it is polite to name the authors no matter for whom they work.  Ok, if 
it has no disadvantages I can of course leave the FSF line as it is.  But for 
me IMHO the people count, not the companies they work for ;)
