I worked out a small patch[1] with ncopa to check for valid SPDX
licenses inside abuild.
I also added an aport[2] to aports which includes all licences
(including a list pkg which abuild uses).

We decided to issue a warning instead of error because too many
packages will be affected and
could create havoc for first time contributors.
