Is there anything included in Broadway X that would prevent me from redistributing it as part of a new Linux distribution?

Not as long as you don't use the CD-ROM handler or else don't charge money for it. The CD-ROM handler's license doesn't allow it to be used in commercial distributions.

I think phoenixconsole will answer this better, but the icons, etc have to be changed as well.

Better start with plain AROS hosted.
No commercial use (cdhandler -> solution:remove).
lx x86 version is exclusive.
ax x86 version is exclusive.
Icons need to be changed. Wallpapers/themes... depending on author need permissions (not all).
Some included apps need permission from author, at least it would be better to ask. No one would sue but it is nice to ask.

Who would I have to contact for the proper license(s) and how much would the license(s) cost if anything?

Which parts?
Cdhandler? I've got offers in 2010 for 3000-5000€..
Better exclude it.

If you plan a comercial release you should only use BSD and APL stuff. MIT license seems ok to.

I am primarily interested in lx and ax. I can replace the Icons and create my own theme provided I get the right documentation. The rest I can do through linux.

I don't see what the problem with GPL is; just include source code on same CDROM or make it downloadable somewhere.

Up to v2 i would agree. GPL v3 is not so good in a commercial context.
In a free world doing free stuff and offering it for free, GPL is ok.
If you try to sell something and to protect own work it starts to get a bit confusing.

It is much cleaner to move to BSD and replace GPL stuff wherever possible.
Just my pov.

Major difference between v2 and v3 is the anti-tivoization clauses for v3. Unless one wants to lock users out running changed binary code running on something one sells there is not much difference between v2 and v3: just make the source available and you are OK.

I want to make my source code usable by everybody if other users/programmers also make their changes to my open source code public. That's why I prefer GPL over BSD. I do prefer GPLv2 over v3 though as I don't have a big problem with tivoization.
