To clarify, this is not really a change in license, AFAIK it was just
clarified in the README. MHD has always been under LGPLv2.1+, and due to
certain requests we dual-licensed under GPL+eCOS exception some years
ago for the subset the code that doesn't touch GnuTLS.

So an upgrade should not change anything for your project.
