Yes, please remove PBS_License_2.5.txt and keep the original license file.
Adaptive's contact information are well known and could easily be moved to
the README file.

> With the release of TORQUE 2.5.0 we updated the license file to reflect that Adaptive Computing Enterprises, Inc. was the care taker of TORQUE and updated the contact information. The contact information in the previous license was out of date. We also removed provisions one and two from the original license since they expired on December 31, 2001. When these two provisions expired TORQUE became completely free for use and redistribution to commercial and non-commercial interests as long as the proper credits and copyrights were noted as explained in the remaining provisions.
