So, the problem here is that the BSD license has the advertising
which makes it incompatible with GPL. You will need to get the copyright
holders of the code under that BSD license to drop the advertising
clause. I'd strongly suggest trying to work with upstream for this.
I see. I was mostly wondering about the BSD-like licenses not being
exactly BSD. I didn't think about this aspect.
I will contact the developers, but I fear this might take a while.
ttf2pt1 isn't very actively developed. (Latest release from 2003.
Let's call it "mature".)
The script with a GPL license isn't really used by the main program.
It is from a separate developer and merely bundled together in the tar
archive for some user's convenience. (And might only be useful on
SUSE anyway, according to the comments.)
Could I avoid this problem by not including these scripts in the
package instead? ttf2pt1 proper would not loose anything. Or would
this not help, since the SRPM would include the tar archive where the
different files are bundled?
