Browsing through Heimdal(*) source code, I gathered these licenses.
(Might have missed some too.)

Are we ok with them? What should I call them?

There's also some BSD with adv. in there but I think it's obsolete code
that we don't need to build, and only applications, not libraries. Will
double check.
