Assuming those programs are licensed under a DFSG-compliant license,
there should be no problem with repackaging them (if they're not in
Debian source format already, in which case all they need is a rebuild
to assign a maintainer and put a signature on them).

If you have questions about specific licenses, please subscribe to
-legal so we can hash these questions out in a more appropriate forum.
