          Description Evidently the license files for accompanying external products needs to be appended after the Apache License in the top-level $FORREST_HOME/LICENSE.txt rather than the current situation with scattered individual license files.

          ----------
          # Description:
          # * Scan the tree to find artefacts (*.jar and *.zip).
          # * Scan the tree to find license files. The practice at Forrest is to add
          # a license file beside each artefact using a similarly named text file.
          # * Scan the top-level LICENSE.txt file which has a "license:" entry for
          # each license file.
          # * Match artefacts, license files, and license entries.
          # * Report anomalies.
          #
          # FIXME: This is a quick prototype to get past the Forrest-0.9 release.

          # Procedure:
          # ./licer.pl $FORREST_HOME $FORREST_HOME/etc/licer-avoid.txt > licer-out.txt
