For now, I committed the package with the client and server together.

Some of source files are 3-clause BSD, some are 4-clause BSD. You
mentioned that there is some readline functionality but that it's
disabled. The only files distributed under the GPL in this package are
the autotools build scripts, and we don't usually mention those in the
list of licenses. So, I put bsd-3 and bsd-4 in the license field. If
I've made a mistake, we'll correct it :)

I put it in (gnu packages networking), which I think is good enough.
