The .bz2 file is complete and (like 0.96) includes no licence statement,
only sundry copyright notices.
I find it difficult to believe that anyone sincerely wishes to base
current work on that antique code. If it were September, I'd suspect
this was yet another bored freshman trying to troll a mailing list.
But, no licence means unlicenced: If anyone truly wishes some clear
and unambiguous permission to use that code, it will, as you say, be
necessary to contact the copyright holder(s).
