It seems pretty clear to me that it is not DFSG-free.  A DFSG program
needs to be usable on any operating system without discrimination, and
this license says you can use it on Linux without worrying, but if you
merely bundle it with, say, Solaris, then you have some special extra

This license is, in my opinion, not DFSG-free, nor could code written
under it be combined with GPL'd code.  

It also seems perfectly clear to me that it would be suitable for
inclusion in nonfree.
