The file util/ansi2knr.c is also GPL. I'm pretty sure it's unused, but
an easy reference in debian/copyright would cover it.
This may be a problem if it is used, as:
That simply sounds like a utility program included for maintainer convience.
The filename explains exactly what it does.
I strongly doubt it is linked to anything besides the C library.
There are several files that are BSD with advertising clause, including
libntp/memmove.c, libntp/mktime.c, libntp/random.c, libntp/strerror.c,
libntp/strstr.c, ntpd/refclock_jupiter.c, and ntpd/refclock_mx4200.c.
These should be referenced in debian/copyright.
BSD with advertising isn't GPL compatible.
