Each port's license field needs to list whatever license(s) apply to the
files installed by that port. If the docs tell you everything is under
one license, great; if not, you may well have to look at the license
headers in each file. Other distros may have already done this for you,
Debian's copyright files are usually pretty good for example. Make sure
you're looking at the same version though, as licenses do change sometimes.
