license issuse in qterm


I am the maintainer of qterm and I am checking the license issue in qterm.

qterm is release under GPL-2+ as a whole, and the source files are
released under GPL-2+, LGPL-2.1+, BSD-2 and others.

qterm/ssh/getput.h is released under following license[1]. And I don't
know whether it's OK to distribute it as GPL-2+, or whether it fulfill
DFSG, thanks.

$ cat qterm/ssh/getput.h | head -15
/*      $OpenBSD: getput.h,v 1.8 2002/03/04 17:27:39 stevesk Exp $      */
