The X11 license is the closest to the "BSD license without the 
advertising clause" that the author seems to want.

Cut and paste http://www.x.org/terms.htm, put the author's name in in
place of the Open Group, and Bob's your uncle. The key advantage of the
X11 license over the BSD license is that you can borrow X11-licensed
code for a work covered by GPL or LGPL.

A good field guide to licenses is:
