Dragonegg appears to be licensed under GPLv2-or-later, as old GCC was. (Or maybe it has incorporated GPLv3-or-later code from newer GCC versions into it too, making it actually GPLv3-or-later now). In either case, there'd be no license issue, as GPLv3 *is* compatible with the proposed switch of LLVM to the Apache2 license.

So I believe there should be no problem there.
