The copyright file says:

    This package consists of four differently licensed parts:
      * The documentation is under the GFDL (see below);
      * Julius (everything in the folder julius/) is coverd
        by the Julius license (see below)
      * CMake modules are licensed under the BSD license
        (see below)
      * Everything else is covered by the GPLv2

One conclusion from earlier discussions about the Julius license on
debian-legal was that it was non-free:

The thread isn't completely clear to me what the exact problem is
though...

Is Julius dynamically linked to Simon?  I wonder whether GPLv2 is
compatible with the Julius license.

/Simon
