Also, under doc/:
    Permission is granted to copy, distribute and/or modify this
     document under the terms of the GNU Free Documentation License,
     Version 1.3 or any later version published by the Free Software
     Foundation; with no Invariant Sections, with no Front-Cover Texts,
     and with no Back-Cover Texts.  A copy of the license is included in
     the appendix entitled “GNU Free Documentation License”.
But I guess that you do indeed see the documentation license on info alive (plus I don't see any copies of any GFDL under licenses).

Finally, according to the alive news, xdgdirs is optional, while the ebuild has it as a harddep.
