I couldn't find this in the source, but I strongly suspect that this is
copied in by libtool. Moreover, it most likely contains this:

# As a special exception to the GNU General Public License,
# if you distribute this file as part of a program or library that

I didn't add ltmain.sh to debian/copyright, as it's not part of the
source anyway.
