Quoting Eirk de Castro Lopo:
For the second issue, this is due to the machine readable cabal file
format not accepting "BSD2" as a valid license. The solution I
came up with for this was as suggestion to put the follow in
the LICENSE file of the upstream package:

    The following is the license for this package even though
    the cabal file says BSD3. The cabal file is a machine readable
    file and currently, the parser does not understand 'BSD2'.

I do not understand that but you should at least quote this message in
debian/copyright if there is no other solution.

Cabal accepts 'OtherLicense' in this field and a freeform 'license-file' field.
