It looked like it was specific to the files that were originally LGPL and
were relicensed, and I suspect it was just an accident of rewording the
license notice instead of copying and pasting the regular GPLv3 license

Thank you for your quick review!

As soon as I have a moment, I'm going to work on a patch that lets gnubg
search in $localstatedir/lib/$PACKAGE as well as $pkgdatadir for files and
submit it for review.  That will let me drop the last Debian-specific
modifications to the package.

I just uploaded 1.01.003-1 to Debian unstable.  Sorry about how
embarassingly long it took me to upload the package.  Thank you so much
for the regular versioned release!  It makes the packaging process a lot
