IMHO for the most commonly used build systems, like autotools and cmake, the
license of those files can be omitted in d/copyright.

As you had mentioned, I did a quick check for gecko-mediaplayer's copyright and
found two problems:
1.INSTALL is not licensed under GFDL, also GFDL isn't DFSG Free.
2.For files that have multiple licenses, for example MPL-1.1, GPL-2+
and LGPL-2.1+,
 we need to add the "license block" in d/copyright, also including the
actual text of
 those three licenses.
