This seems like an ideal case to promote the proposed format
<URL:http://wiki.debian.org/Proposals/CopyrightFormat> for
machine-parseable 'debian/copyright' files.

In the absence of that, it does seem the only way to know is to
manually parse the 'debian/copyright' files until you've investigated
all dependencies that would count as "derived work".
