I asked Grubba from Idonex about this again yesterday, and here is
their answer. Hopefully this means the package can be included.

The bitmapped fonts used by Roxen are not subject to copyright. We have
even checked this with Adobe, from which vector fonts some of the
bitmapped fonts were generated. This might seem strange, but creating a
bitmapped image from the vector fonts is the normal usage of the font. If
you then use the bittmapped image as a bitmapped font is your business.
