It's helpful if you include the license in the mail rather than just
linking to it. In any case, it looks like it's probably DFSG free but
not GPL compatible. Points 1, 2 and 3 are basically standard (don't
claim it's someone else's, if you modify it you have to say so, don't
file off the copyright notices), whereas point 4 provides a restriction
that's not in the GPL (it's not quite the same as 2c - paintlib itself
is plainly not an interactive program) thus rendering it incompatible.
