anyone out there tell me how this is done for Debian? Furthermore, I wonder if it wouldn't be better to make the nonfree part a separate package or remove it from octave-forge--does anyone even use it?

I like csaps (from nonfree/splines/). The only non-free file there
is gcvsplf.f (taken from netlib). I could not find any license info
on netlib, but octave-forge has  LICENSE.gcvsplf which pretty much
prohibits commercial use of the software (not commercial distribution,
as far as I can tell -- IANAL).

I do not use gpc (at least directly -- may be it is used by some
package), but I do not understand why it is in nonfree/ directory.
The license says:

Looks quite GNUish to me.
