The license text I pasted came directly from natpmp.c in the libnatpmp source

It seemed to me from the thread's progression that miniupnp was not the code we
intended to use; this is why I was talking specifically about libnatpmp.

Sean replied to me off-list (I suspect he merely missed "reply all"--gmail
*really* needs a reply-to-list button) and pointed out that the license is the
standard ISC license, which according to the FSF is definitely GPL-compatible.
I did not recognize the license text; this is why I questioned it.  Since it's a
known compatible license, I have no issues with it now.
