I stumbled over the issue when looking at the lapack.spec file of a
Linux distribution, which excluded them from packaging with the comment
that license doesn't permit (the distribution) to ship it.
"We had green light from Intel to use them" ? Well, I assume that they
are okay to ship, even if the header says otherwise. Thus, I wouldn't be
surprised if Intel would agree to re-license them. However, writing a
new example from scratch is also fine.
