..and configure scripts have parts of autotools, Makefile.ins contain
code from automake, and even compiled binaries contain stuff that
originates from the compiler.
I don't think these should be documented in debian/copyright, that'd
lead to an endless list, in every single package in the archive.
The copyright file should - in my opinion- document the licenses of that
single package, not the licenses of itself, and everything else that is
used to build it
