Ah. Zarf. Quite a fascinating fellow. :)

Definiately DFSG-free.

As fo GPL-compatible.... probably. Strictly speaking even the X11 licence is not GPL compatible, because it has a restriciton not found in the GPL: maintaing a copy of the terms of the X11 licence. However we overlook that normally. I figure if that is ignored, the requirement of including only a name and url is an ignorable incompatibility also.
