Thanks for asking!

The BSD license that applies to sftp-glob.c permits you to include
code in another product, GPL or other license, as long as certain
conditions are met. Please see the top of the file sftp-glob.c for
the full statement that gives you permission to use, copy modify and
distribute the software.
