spread-sheet-widget not redistributable

Continuing the recent topic of (L)GPL port openssl dependency

I notice the spread-sheet-widget port claims to be affected by this.
It is not a large port, but it only has coreutils and pkgconfig as build
dependencies, and gtk3 as a library dependency, and all direct dependencies
are (L)GPL licensed and have binaries available. Why isn't
spread-sheet-widget considered redistributable as well? Is gtk3 or one of
its dependencies erroneously considered redistributable?
