Note that http://www.nsa.gov/selinux/src-disclaim.html begins "Before
downloading this software..." and is titled "Legal Notices", not "License"
(and has "disclaim" in the URL).  I think that means that _you_ are
required to agree before downloading from their site.  Someone installing
your Debian package is not downloading from their site and so has no need
to read the notice.

http://www.nsa.gov/selinux/license.html makes it very clear that the
license terms are DFSG compliant.
