But it's actually a cygwin program, at least on Windows, right? Aren't all cygwin programs GPLed because of cygwin1.dll? Now as to whether including a GPL program in your commercial product is OK I don't know, IANAL. And perhaps I'm even wrong about the cygwin thing, but AFAIK that's why MinGW was invented -- cygwin licensing problems.
