Regarding mjpegtools, I think the source even got some more severe 
license issues than the ones you pointed out before, e.g. 
mjpegtools-1.9.0/aenc/common.h (and several other files in aenc/):

  * Copyright (c) 1991 MPEG/audio software simulation group, All 
Rights Reserved
  *   common.h
  * MPEG/audio coding/decoding software, work in progress              *
  *   NOT for public distribution until verified and approved by the   *
  *   MPEG/audio committee.  For further information, please contact   *
  *   Davis Pan, 508-493-2241, e-mail: pan at gauss.enet.dec.com          *

Doen's look likely to meet the DFSG requirements. :(
