Matt Emmerton <matt at gsicomp.on.ca> added the comment:

Our vinum links with *and* uses readline, so more work is required to fix that.

FreeBSD-6 uses a GEOM-based vinum, which links with and uses readline.  
However, it appears to be considerably rewritten from the non-GEOM vinum, and 
uses the new BSD licence (no adv clause) so they are fine linking with the 
GPL'd readline.
