No uncertain terms would come from the license you receive the software
under, easy might introduce uncertain terms.

Basically, as long as you don't have G.729, you only need provide upon
request the source code of asterisk. Similarly, mysql will work the same
way. As soon as you stray into the parts of the code that arn't GPL you
have to start licensing the code and pay for them.
