I like to think that this can be put in Debian's non-free section given a
slightly clarified license, which was the purpose of my original e-mail,
since I was unable to fully figure out what was covered under what, and
getting licensing exact is important. All I *could* tell was that some of
the compiler code may have come from the original compiler, but I had no
hints. It's certainly not illegal, but it did confuse me a bit. But I hope
that can be set aside, and now that the situation has been clarified we can
get the package at least into 'non-free'. It's just those four files that
contain pieces of the old code, correct? It's easy enough for me to say so
in debian/copyright.
