I think this is one of the cases where the original author should be
contacted for clarification.  You should definitely mention that we
can't ditribute it in main if the author keeps the license this way.

As for the GPL, this list may fall outside of the jurisdiction of the
GPL on the rest of the code, since (AIUI) it is merely a list of
sites.  It's not code, and it is not linked, so one might argue for
the "mere aggregation" clause in the GPL.
