(however, by default it is not) to link against some GPLed libraries, and
therefore the use of these builds may be restricted in non-GPL-compatible
projects.  See below for a discussion of CLN, GLPK, and Readline (the three
GPLed optional library dependences for CVC4), and how to ensure you have a
build that doesn't link against GPLed libraries.

CVC4 by default links against The GNU Multiple Precision (GMP) Arithmetic
Library, which is licensed under GNU LGPL v3. See the file
licenses/lgpl-3.0.txt for a copy of that license.  Note that according to the
terms of the LGPL, both CVC4's source, and the combined work (CVC4 linked with
GMP) may (and do) remain under the more permissive modified BSD license.

Please be advised that the following libraries are covered under the GPLv3
license.  If you choose to link CVC4 against one of these libraries, the
resulting combined work is also covered under the GPLv3. If you want to make
sure you build a version of CVC4 that uses no GPLed libraries, configure CVC4
with the "--bsd" option before building (which is the default).  CVC4 can then
be used in contexts where you want to use CVC4 under the terms of the
(modified) BSD license.  See licenses/gpl-3.0.txt for more information.
