News about SCO's attack on GMP

I'm totally confused.

I've looked through and used the GMP, and it seems to be large-integer and 
rational math based on published best-known algorithms.

I don't see the relationship with Linux and Unix--especially since the core 
of the library could even be ported to an embedded system.

What am I not seeing?

Best regards, Dave.
