Thanks for checking 10 packages.  Your report makes the issue
completely clear.

This one package might actually be ok.

  > ttl-mode    Two-clause BSD licence

Is the license properly applied?  If so, I guess the license-checking
scripts should be fixed to take notice of it.

The rest are all real problems of greater or lesser severity.

For the moment, I don't think I need any more information about the
other packages.  The overall outlines of the problem are clear enough,
and one package more or less in each category won't change it much.

I will study the right way to address the situation.
