That license doesn't look GPL compatible to me due to the following:
The following copyright notice applies to the source code files for which this license is granted.

All advertising materials mentioning features or use of this software must display the following acknowledgement:

Provided this is the case (and I'm following licenses correctly), inclusion in a GPL'd system would be in violation of Caldera's license. That noted, once again Caldera/SCO has likely redistributed this code (uh, set of comments) under the GPL for their own Linux distribution.
