6.6 bsd: Show the Berkeley Software Distribution license

The bsd command displays the Berkeley Software Distribution License. The options --2-clause and --3-clause control which variant of the license is displayed.

This license is short enough to also serve as a license notice.

This command downloads the license from directory.fsf.org/wiki/License:BSD_3Clause.

By default the three clause BSD license is shown. This license is easily confused with the OpenBSD license. See isc invocation for more information.
