Since 1.9.3, Ruby is licensed under the 2-clause BSD license instead of the GPL license. What about older versions? If they are not relicensed, how to relicense them?

You could for example visit the GitHub mirror of the MRI source code, switch to the branch of the version you are interested in, and consult the COPYING file. For Ruby 1.8.7 it's a **dual** GPLv2/Ruby license (not a pure GPL license), see https://github.com/ruby/ruby/blob/ruby_1_8_7/COPYING If the stated conditions do not fit your needs you can "make other distribution arrangements with the author" (that would be Matz).
