According to the sourceforge project site for opencvlibrary, it is
now a BSD license and the copying file at the top of that distribution
looks to be a vanilla BSD style license.  But it does have a not in
the FAQ that you have to have Intel's Image Processing Library so
that must be what you remember.  But even that's contradicted by
this on Intel's OpenCV site:

Q2: I want a Linux version of the Intel® Image Processing Library, where
do I get this?
A2: OpenCV no longer depends on the Image Processing Library.

The end result is that I don't have a clue what the current
version depends on.  Jack.. could you enlighten me?
