What kind of BSD license is meant?


I'm currently updating devel/p5-DATA-UUID
( and there is as LICENSE simply
named 'BSD' with the following text:

> This distribution contains code derived from the sample UUID implementation in
> RFC 4122, which contains the following clause.
>  /*

Which license is meant? The original BSD license or the modified one?
