What should be in debian/copyright when a gpl source now depends on openssl?

  I am not sure the subject accurately reflects the body of this message.

  Narcis Ilisei has the copyright to inadyn. He released it under the gpl.
The source that he wrote is an http client of some sort Aand depends
only on libc. Now opendns.com offers to download a modified version. 
Their version adds an https support. I couldn't see any copyright notice
for their version. opendns's version depends on
                              -lcurl -lssl -lcrypto -ldl -lz -lkrb5support
, where ssl is provided by openssl.

  Can debian distributes opendns's version? Assuming that opendns
wrote their modifications by themselves, What should be put in

  Is the following appropriate as debian/copyright:
