There's also an additional problem: the ebuild says the dosemu license is the GPLv2, and the GPLv2 explicitly does not require accepting the license as long as you don't distribute the software (section 5), but there's no way to use dosemu without accepting its license. However, that second problem is probably one for the dosemu folks, not one for Gentoo to sort out.
What would you suggest? Installing the copying-file doesn't make much sense imho, cause it's basically just the gpl.
Upstream seems pretty sleeping atm (hopefuly not completely dead), if you want it resolved consider patching dosemu to skip the license agreement, but I don't think it's a very important issue.
Beside that, the "accept gpl"-thingy is also happening in OOo.

If you don't want to install the COPYING file, you can modify the source to point to $PORTDIR/licenses/GPL-2, or somewhat simpler, install a COPYING symlink to $PORTDIR/licenses/GPL-2.

I can understand that, so just having COPYING installed (whether as a file or as a symlink) is good enough for me from Gentoo's side.

I don't use OOo, but if I did and noticed it, I'd consider it a bug with that too. :)
installing copying now
reopen. how is this exactly supposed to be working when you can set PORTAGE_COMPRESS to e.g. "xz" and it ends up as COPYING.xz, and by default, COPYING.bz2 ?
dosemu knows howto read <random compression format>? 'doubts it :)
dosemu didn't actually show the license to the user, it merely told the user to read it. If the file is installed in a format that the user can read, I don't see a problem.
But it looks like dosemu has since been changed not to prompt for acceptance of the license, so this is fixed either way, and the ebuild can go back to not installing the file at all :)
$ equery f dosemu | grep -i copying
