I don't think this is possible. Libdecnumber is GPLv3+ code while QEMU overall

Is there an older, GPLv2 licensed version available?
Interesting timing .... I was just about to put out a complete patch set for 
all of DFP.

In earlier feedback, Richard had suggested that I go further upstream inside of 
IBM ... which I did.
But of course, that is also GPLv3.

The original copy comes from here : http://spelotrove.com/decimal/#decNumber 
which was published with
something called the ICU 1.8.1 license.  I am not at all familiar with that 

Looks like I'm going to have to "lawyer up" :)

Yes, please do. I'm sure IBM has plenty lawyers who are happy to help out here :).
