Dear all,

I contacted the upstream author and he suggested to distribute all his
work under the GPL, which solves my problem.

I have one last question: the package uses autoconf. Do I have to
mention every autoconf-related file and remind their copyright holder
and licence in the copyright file of the Debian package? I am a bit
reluctant to do this. Too much information kills information.

Have a nice day,
