In fact, they go beyond what is required, since they even credit  
authors of public domain code. E.g.:

Doug Lea ( dlmalloc )
This is a version (aka dlmalloc) of malloc/free/realloc written by  
Doug Lea and released to the public domain.  Use, modify, and  
redistribute this code without permission or acknowledgement in any  
way you wish.  Send questions, comments, complaints, performance  
data, etc to dl at cs.oswego.edu.
