See the FAQ, esp. section 10.1:

  10.1 Is Pine Open Source?

  It depends on how that term is defined. Source for Unix Pine is
  provided to allow users and system administrators to customize and
  adapt Pine for their own requirements. UW's Pine license allows
  anyone to download source code for Unix Pine and make modifications
  for their own local use without asking permission. Anyone can also
  create and distribute patch files to implement bug fixes or minor
  enhancements without asking permission. However, redistribution of a
  modified version of Pine requires explicit permission from the
  University of Washington.
