Where do we mention LGPL v2? Both the LICENSE file and the GNU_LGPL_v3 file
in $AMBERHOME/AmberTools state that we use version 3 of the GPL and LGPL.
And version 3 is compatible with apache2, according to the web page cited

I'm guessing that somewhere else there must be an (incorrect) reference to
LGPL 2.1; if so, we should get that fixed.

Ray: be sure to update the LICENSE file if we are planning to include cusp
libraries in the distribution. (Seems dangerous at this late date--has
any Amber person ever used these libraries with portland group, intel, cray,
etc compilers?)
