In Debian, third-party acknowledgements of this form appear in
/usr/share/doc/*/copyright, which is part of the end-user documentation
in /usr/share/doc. So I think this is fine: documenting the license
in /usr/share/doc/*/copyright, which you are already required to do, is
enough to comply with this clause.

(I'm sure we have a lot of software with similar license clauses.)
