I would like to know if crypt lib licence would allow it for being
included in Debian as a Debian package. The licence is available at
Apparently, the license (text below) is a BSD-sans-advertising -like.

Thank you for your answer.
So it means there is no legal problems for a cryptlib package ? My
wondering was more about this statement and the link with points 5 and 6
of the Debian social contract:
If you're unable to comply with the above license then the following,
alternate usage conditions apply:
Any large-scale commercial use of cryptlib requires a license.
"Large-scale commercial use" means any revenue-generating purpose such
as use for company- internal purposes, or use of cryptlib in an
application or product, with a total gross revenue of over US$5,000.
This allows cryptlib to be used in freeware and shareware applications,
for evaluation and research purposes, and for non-revenue-generating or
personal use without charge. In addition the author reserves the right
to grant free licenses for commercial use in special cases (for example
where there is a general benefit to the public), contact the author for
details if you think you qualify.
