Actually, he did reply to that, but perhaps you didn't see it.

He had an unfree program (the wattcp library) and GNU tar and
discovered that he wasn't allowed to ship a program that linked
these two together.  He then said, gloriously, "please don't try
to say the problem was cause by those other licenses -
they did not prevent anyone else from getting copies..."  :-)
