[Lapack] licence question

Hello Leo, 

No attorney here. No license expert. But I think you should keep our license 
in, not modify it and add your own license. 
(And this will be totally fine with us.) Thanks for inquiring.

Dear Lapack Team, 

I have ported some parts of Lapack & Blas to Ada and I'd like to make the 
code available for public use. But before I release the code I'd like to 
canvas your opinions on how I should assign the copyright. The original 
copyright licence (from the Fortran sources) must be included, that much is 
clear. But I have made some small changes forced upon me by the transition 
from Fortran to Ada. These changes are all to do with syntax, there is no 
change in functionality. 

I do not want to breach your copyright but I also want to protect my own 
(very small) contribution.
Do I need to add a separate copyright notice to this Ada version? Should I 
modify your existing licence?

I would be most grateful for any advice.

Best wishes,
