Yes. It's this:


I believe it's compatible with everything else you mentioned.

I'm happy to replace it with the exact text in RELICENSING if that's
what people prefer.

(Note, by the way, that one of the files I contributed is not linked
into tcc and not even used by any Makefile recipe: lib/testfp.c is a
separate test that interested people can run for themselves. You don't
need to worry about licence compatibility for that file.)
