I'm not normally a licensing fanatic but I sincerely agree with Greg on
this one.  We want to keep relations good with all other people in the
open-source/free-software (pick which one you like) world.  I therefore
think that it's important to keep copyright notices intact - we'd be
unhappy if someone nicked the LFS or BLFS book and took the Copyright
notice off (or I would be anyways).

Zack, would you *please* consider adding the copyright notice back 
in full.

Also, I think we should ask the debianutils maintainer whether there
should be a copyright notice on tempfile.c
