Maybe this should be $spdx_license_file
but what's the actual reason to check if
multiple license bits are in a single file?

It's nicer to use a non / leading char like @
so you don't have to escape the /.

maybe
	$realfile =~ m@...-bindings/.*\.h$@

nicer to indent these last 2 lines one more space
to keep alignment to open parenthesis.
