[Fedora-packaging] Packaging truecrypt for Fedora (licencing question)

I have the package here:
Spec URL: http://rathann.fedorapeople.org/review/truecrypt.spec
SRPM URL: http://rathann.fedorapeople.org/review/truecrypt-5.0a-1.src.rpm
but the licence is a bit of a mess. It's a collection of licences, including:
* TrueCrypt Licence Version 2.4: doesn't allow distributing patched versions
  and calling them TrueCrypt. Otherwise it's similar to BSD with advertising
* Licence agreement for Encryption for the Masses: similar to the above
* SSLeay licence
* some BSD licence (alternatively GPL)
* some attribution only licence
* another BSD-like licence

Is this acceptable for Fedora?
