They may be copied and used for any purpose (including distribution as part of a for-profit product), provided:

1) The original attribution of the programs is clearly displayed in the product and/or documentation, even if the programs are modified and/or renamed as part of the product.

2) The original source code of the programs is provided free of charge (except for reasonable distribution costs). For a definition of reasonable distribution costs, see the Gnu General Public License or Larry Wall's Artistic License (provided with the Perl 4 kit). The GPL and Artistic License in NO WAY affect this license; they are merely used as examples of the spirit in which it is intended.

3) These programs are provided "as-is". No warranty or guarantee of their fitness for any particular task is provided. Use of these programs is completely at your own risk.

Basically, I don't mind how you use the programs so long as you acknowledge the author, and give people the originals if they want them.
