I just grabbed the SDK and took a peek. It is definitely GPL
incompatible as it requires linking to a non-OSS library. This isn't so
much about the Max/MSP SDK license as the ChucK one.
As such, chuck~ violates ChucK's license, not Cycling '74's. Again, I
doubt the ChucK authors are deeply offended, but it'd be nice if their
intent is to allow such things that such were made explicit. There are
a number of ways to do that (the GPL provides a mechanism for
exceptions, there are also popular more permissive licenses, the popular
variations, in order of permissiveness being BSD, MPL and LGPL.).
