For Debian, the GPL bits are no problem - if they're not linked in, the
whole is GPL. I just noticed when I was writing the debian/copyright file.
But I have noticed one other thing that is more important for Debian: the
openpgm tarball includes the relevant RFC, and while I find that this is
really a good practice, unfortunately the RFC are definitely non-free. So
either they're removed in the original tarball or I'll have to remove them
from the Debian "orig" tarball :-(
(the latter is no big problem, I can do that. So don't feel forced to
remove the RFC just because Debian is pedantic.)
