Should we just grab some version that works and include it in the
tools directory, so that we don't get mysterious failures when
updating the version of Ubuntu on the buildbot and don't fail - or
require somebody to dig up or install via CPAN - on systems that
don't distribute it?
No... too many CPAN dependencies.
I.e., it's not a standalone script, and you'd have to get a ton of
other scripts from CPAN and distribute them as well?
Yes (naturally this is the dependency problem CPAN itself tries to solve).
The Debian licensecheck.pl version prior to the Smedegaard take over was 
standalone. I think we should import that to tools.
The version corresponding to our buildbots (Ubuntu 16.04) is available here:
