If it is not one of the "usual" licenses which already have their
acronyms prepared in DEP-5, you'll have to make up an appropriate
license name yourself. This could probably be e.g. george-williams-
license or fontforge-expat-look-alike or even just other-1.

You need to make sure that the license names are unique and unambigious
within the same debian/copyright file, though. And make sure to quote
the license in its entirety in its own License paragraph.
