freetds library -- any legal issues?

  Freetds library (, LGPL licensed) is an 
implementation of the Sybase/Mcrosoft TDS protocol (Tabular DataStream).
  It is used, for example, to access mssql servers. In the current 
Fedora's php there is a conditionally builded package php-mssql, which 
(if build :)) depends on it.

  Whether some legal issues with this library are known?
Whether it looks mostly like a Samba (and may go into FE), or should go 
to Livna?
