LICENSE is available from buildhistory. Also binary package content of images
is available from buildhistory. With some scripting it is possible to list
recipes which produce binaries to images, except for static linking and
header-only recipes but I hope these cought via some other way.

The thing is, I don't see how recipes make any difference between a
build-time dependency such as a build tool, or a statically linked
library, so that some additional information should be input somewhere;
failing to provide that, since I don't feel like finding static library
symbols in binaries to perform a discovery, I just tell my clients to
distribute everything except their proprietary bits...
