Ooops, looks like I copied the wrong section of the build script.
Build target is much more incriminating than build host.

While I am certainly not a lawyer, the above seems entirely
inconclusive to me. I read that as "This was built on a
Fedora Core 6 host." That doesn't mean that the image itself
contains GPL code.
While it may be very likely that it does, I think you need
to dig further to figure that out for sure.
