Did some digging here, and found a copy of the original website, which was
current at the time of the last release of libnurbs (aka, nurbs++), 3.0.11.

>From that, it is clear that the author intended nurbs++ to be under the
LGPLv2+. Looking at the CVS history, the author appears to have been the only
person who has checked in files, so I have no reason to assume that the
unlicensed files come from questionable licensing.

In addition, most of the unlicensed files are little more than stubs for c++
(e.g. nurbs/f_nurbsS_sp.cpp), the only unlicensed files of any real
significance are:

numerical/statistic.cpp
numerical/chebexp.cpp
numerical/integrate.h
numerical/fft.cpp

Based on that, I think it is safe to assume that all of the unlicensed files
are LGPLv2+.

So, please fix the license tag to be:

License: LGPLv2+

If upstream ever comes back to life, it would still be nice if they fixed the
licensing on the unlicensed files (along with the other issues highlighted in
the sourceforge ticket), but I won't hold this review up for it.

Lifting FE-Legal.
