Is "VIGRA Artistic License" licence free and GPL-compatible ?

Since someone want to package[1] Vigra library[2], I wan't to know if VIGRA 
Artistic License[3] is DFSG compatible and if I can use this library in a 
GPL'ed program.

As far as I can see, this licence is free, but not compatible with GPL, 
because of :
"4. You may otherwise modify your copy of this Library in any way,
    provided that you insert a prominent notice in each changed file"

But I'm not a lawyer, and it's why I want your point of view.
