I've got a BSD-licensed library up for review. All of the code for
the library falls under the BSD license, but the package bundles an

built and used in %check, but does not end up in the resulting binary
RPM. My question is, do I need to include LGPLv3 in the package's
license? Or, should I rm the LGPL source during %prep and exclude
%check? The guidelines tend to indicate I don't need to include
LGPLv3 in the license field, but this particular case isn't treated in
the multiple licensing situations.
You don't need to include LGPLv3 in this case, because those bits do not
end up in the binary RPM package.
