The SPDX reference pattern uses “Copyright (c)”, and the second

The SPDX XML file for Boehm-GC:
does not account for "shellscript" as an alternative to "program".
Details of copyright notices are ignored for matching purposes and
matching is case insensitive. Fedora is basically adopting the SPDX
understanding of what "matching" means for purposes of using SPDX
So probably what would need to be done here is getting SPDX to modify
the XML for Boehm-GC rather than assign a new identifier for this
