Here is the answer of the upstream author about this problem:
Those files are public domain, which means that they are distributed
without a license. This is the least restrictive way of distributing
content on the planet. You can do anything you want with that.
You are correct, however. The last sentence is not in the spirit of the
PD. This verbiage is from NIST and it is clearly not legal. We will
remove it from the next release.
So, I will close this bug when packaging the next release (I will skip
the current 3.5.8).
Untill then, I'm not sure of what to do and what is the Debian way to
handle this problem.
