The Boo Reader binary definitely includes the pieces of the following:
1) glibc
2) libgcj
3) jpeglib
4) pnglib
5) zlib
6) boehm gc
7) freetype
8) mupdf
9) expat
10) IBM's ICU
11) fonts by URW
12) iconv
And probably more not readily-identified libs. Not all of above is (L)GPL but enough, I think, to make them obliged to make source code available.
Funny thing is that Mobipocket code is compiled in too (with gcj). I wonder if that means it'll have to be open-sourced too.
