FYI the license in question is the SoX license which has been in Debian
and basically all distributions for 20 years (as part of SoX)...

I assume the file is based on this:

The SoX project relicensed some time ago to GPL so if you are to believe
that that was OK, then there are no licensing problems with this file
(but the copyright header should be updated to reflect that).
