Custom license question (Glk libraries)


I'm packaging a set of Glk user interface libraries [1], which are
distributed under a custom license, included below. In my limited
understanding this is both DFSG-free and GPL-compatible, but I'd like
to be sure about this. The libraries are going to be linked against
GPL- and BSD-licensed code.

>From the README of the xglk library:

 XGlk: X Windows Implementation of the Glk API.

 XGlk Library: version 0.4.11
 Glk API which this implements: version 0.6.1.
 Designed by Andrew Plotkin <erkyrath@eblong.com>

 This is source code for an implementation of the Glk library which runs
 under X windows.
