I am interested in evaulating OSKit for a commercial project and
wanted to find out a ball-park for licensing fees; I had mailed and
called a number of times and got no response.  Not very encouraging.

their work is derived from other GPLd sources including
Linux... (note: not an opinion... just an observation...)
