Shouldn't COPYRIGHT also be listed with the license files?

The Copyright file just tells us "wrt the license, you can do that and
that, but not that with this software",
with some real use case.

Shall we consider as part of the license files?

  Since you refer to it in the RRDTOOL_LICENSE, yes the COPYRIGHT file
should be included.

  Note that "GPLv2+ with exceptions" is probably enough, since the
user should anyway look at COPYRIGHT to find out the details.
