Because that's confusing. It says: "You are licensed to use this software under
the terms of either the Q Public License (QPL) or the GNU General Public License
(GPL) versions 2 or 3." But Trinity decided to release Qt under the GPL only.

And because it's useless and boring. It makes free software looks like
non-free software. It makes GPL looks like a contract. That's strange.

"The freedom to run the program means the freedom for any kind of person or
organization to use it on any kind of computer system, for any kind of overall
job and purpose, without being required to communicate about it with the developer
or any other specific entity."

You don't need to say yes to a stupid script that doesn't even hear you! ;-)

> sed -i "s|read acceptance|acceptance=yes|" configure

or: echo yes|./configure

but what for?

I just suggest to print a message about the GPL, without asking for answers.
