This issue has been discussed on this list multiple times. Google is
your friend. Basically, the authors are free to choose whatever
license they want and they happened to choose GPL rather than LGPL.
End of story.


P.S. FWITW, I would personally prefer LGPL for GSL. GPL is too viral
for a library.
