Hello Alex,
finally came to the end of my debian/copyright! :-)
Here are some issues I found:

  - you state that some functions are based on nonstd.c, others on sboxes.c
    (both by Matthew Kwan), but don't clearly give a licensing statement.
    That's your code, your choice to release it under GPLv2 or Matthew-Kwan's

  - same issue as src/x86-64.S
  - missing copyright years for authors other than you ;-)

Also, it would be great if I added mail contacts for Matthew Kwan, Bruce Ford
and Rémi Guyomarch, all cited in the copyright headers. I haven't googled for
them yet, but I had to send you this mail for the licensing issues.
