Sync zmodem code makes packages non-free

Due to issues with the zmodem code, it may also be more appropriate for it to be in non-free.
* Update debian/control to reflect being non-free due to current zmodem code. (r159)
* Update debian/copyright regarding zmodem files for Synchronet. (r160)(r150)


Note regarding this as added to the debian/copyright file:
# zmodem related files
The files sbbs3/zmodem.h and sbbs3/zmodem.c are derived from the
