That depends on how Stan writes those parts. We could, for instance,
have some template outside gdbarch.sh which the script will edit to
produce the actual Texinfo.
In general, there's any number of ways to do this job without
violating the GNU licenses.

RMS always asserted that such jobs will not present any
license-related problems in practice. I can run the idea through him
in advance and see if he has any specific advice, if Stan would like
that before he embarks on doing this job.
