I'd think that "BSD and BSD" will be confusing for humans (may be) and for
parser (more likely).
I'd suggest something like:
Copyright: 1988-1997 Sam Leffler
1991-1997 Silicon Graphics, Inc.
1985, 1986 The Regents of the University of California.
Comment: file has been licensed with 2 slightly different BSD licenses
<include both bsd licenses>
