Follow-up Comment #6, task #14249 (project administration):

I'm afraid LGPLv3 is not sufficient: you see, that license
is worded as an additional permission for GPLv3-licensed software.
It refers to GPLv3, so GPLv3 should also be included.

Also, I couldn't figure out why the package need the GCC Runtime
exception: what does it mean for this package?

The situation is pretty complicated, there are more questions.

For example, the only copyright line in INSTALL says

#  Copyright (C) 1999-2017 Yves Renard

On the other hand, the file shares considerable amount of
texts with the INSTALL file provided by GNU Autotools,
and their file reads like

Copyright (C) 1994-1996, 1999-2002, 2004-2013 Free Software Foundation,

   Copying and distribution of this file, with or without modification,
are permitted in any medium without royalty provided the copyright
notice and this notice are preserved.  This file is offered as-is,
without warranty of any kind.

At the very least, one of those notices has to be incomplete.

Then, the copyright status of many files from superflu/ is not
clear; and the comments in BLAS.c suggest that it isn't a source
file (because it was compiled from a different source). The user
wouldn't legally be able to redistribute such package.
