Does this include implementations/openfst-1.1 too? It is under the Apache 
license. Common interpretation of the licenses is that you can't release 
Apache licensed code under GPL2 unless the authors of the Apache licensed code 
(in this case Google and at least two independent contributors) have 
explicitly agreed to it.

There is some disagreement whether this is a correct interpretation but at 
least FSF and Fedora seems to have written licensing guidelines that consider 
these licenses incompatible.
