Apart ISC/author change the other (more) significant change in the
license of sysutils/bfs seems to be a missing part in the first
paragraph (in `[...]' parts that are only in isc):

 | Permission to use, copy, modify, and/or distribute this software for any
 | purpose with or without fee is hereby granted [, provided that the above
 | copyright notice and this permission notice appear in all copies].

IMHO it's okay and safe to just reuse `isc' as LICENSE and remove
`isc-AUTHOR' one.

(But please wait for other possible feedbacks/comments!)
