Licensing text must be included verbatim - matching a common pattern is optional but actually including the text is not.

Still having problem with "chbevl.c" file there is just this:

Cephes Math Library Release 2.0:  April, 1987
Copyright 1985, 1987 by Stephen L. Moshier
Direct inquiries to 30 Frost Street, Cambridge, MA 02140

Copyright is clear, but lincence?


I interpret such text as "I own this, please contact me in any case!".

I.e. non-DFSG-free. I recommend contacting upstream to ask if perhaps they did not intend such interpretation, and if so, kindly ask for explicit licensing statement.
