I on occasion follow the Haiku project (http://www.haiku-os.org) which
is small (team wise) but ambitious in creating binary compatibility
with BeOS, and remember reading about them using AGG and a quick
google confirms. Another quick google only gave me one reference to a
mention of license change, and it dealt with trying to negotiate with
the author, and that was back in October.
I have no clue if they have come up with any solution, but if a fork
is done, I would hope that you could get some collaboration going on
with some of their developers.
