ngspice (re)packaging

NGspice is packaged related to license issues for non-free. This site should track the needed steps to move all free parts of ngspice into main.

Packaging Notes

All files of ngspice that have not declared a specific license are licensed under the new BSD license. This is written down within the FAQ file point 1.7 Legal issues in release 26 and the recent released version 27. The FAQ on the website uses a older reference of that FAQ file, there it is still point 1.5.
