 Read the licenense and make a decision based on that. Apparently, it's
free enough for RedHat to include it in their base. My feeling from
zreading their license is that it's about as borderline as it gets. 

Certainly not blatantly nonfree (unlike xv  for example ... )

ABout the only obstruction to it being a GPL license is that any thing
based on pine has to be called pine.

Anyway, on my editors page, I link to the pine license.
