the original source code was distributed with the following disclaimer:

* Copyright 1995-1999 by DFN-CERT.  All rights reserved.

however, it's also built against the gnu regexp library, which is GPL'd.
am i right in assuming that the software is then implicitly under
the GPL?  i've spoken with the upstream, and he has no obligations to
his modifications being distributed under the same terms, whatever they
may be.

thanks for any input,
