FWIW, the main thing that makes it unclear is that there is a copyright
statement in the files, but no licensing terms.

You're probably free to add the licensing terms to the files as soon as you are
not changing upstream's licensing terms. Anyways, a LICENSE file will surely be
enough. According to freshmeat, it's LGPL.
