Then there should be no problems, I think. I am not an expert on 
these copyright issues, but merely communicate my impressions from 
discussions I have had with people over time. There are copyright 
blends, such as Flex distributed under BSD copyright, but which is 
calling M4 as program, the latter which is distributed under GNU 
copyright. The GNU copyright is more restrictive, calling for 
derivative sources to be subject to the same copyright conditions, to 
be open and sources freely available under reasonable access 
conditions, thus cutting out direct commercial exploitations. The BSD 
copyright admits more commercial exploitation.

So you should think through exactly what conditions you want to 
distribute it under, and who should be the copyright holder.

Somebody else will have (and will, I hope) answer that.
