Bug#663455: RFS: m2m-aligner/1.0-1 [ITP] -- many-to-many, alignments for string transduction

I: m2m-aligner source: unused-license-paragraph-in-dep5-copyright gpl-2+ (paragraph at line 129)

I noticed it yesterday.
The problem is that the package contains missing and depcomp that are distributed under the GPL-2+ licence with an exception. I reported this fact by saying that the license of these files is "GPL-2+ or Expat" and adding the exception text in the licence description.

I just read again the copyright format description, and probably I just should report "GPL-2+ with Autoconf exception" instead and avoid to put a long license description.
Is this the right way to proceed?

I think so.

If yes, in other packages I added exceptions by adding each exception in a license section on its own and then using the "and" keyword. Do you think I should change those package to use the "with XXX exception" form?
