Seems to be the standard BSD 4-clause license. Clause 4 is completely
fine, clause 3 is annoying and imposes a burden on redistribution but
generally considered free, AFAIK. I wasn't around before June 1999,
but I expect Debian distributed material under this license back
then. We discourage it, but it is border-line OK.
