It's free-to-download, which is much different from DFSG-free.

The sample config file in /usr/share/doc/xpdf/sample-xpdfrc.gz (on
unstable, with xpdf_2.01-3) gives some hints: it uses t1lib and/or
freetype to do antialiasing, but I think these only do antialiasing of
text (and then maybe only with TrueType fonts, but maybe not).
Looking at some things I have around, I get antialiased text both from
normal TeX fonts (Computer Modern) and normal PostScript fonts
(Palatino, etc.) I get no antialiasing on normal line drawings (in
PostScript, moveto...lineto...stroke commands); I *do* get
antialiasing on line drawings that I've written inside LaTeX, since
those get rendered using TeX fonts and so a font engine gets at it.
Obvious poking around doesn't suggest a way for gv or ghostview to do
full-screen mode. You might be able to put something together quickly
that embeds gs; if it were me and I cared quite enough, I'd spend an
hour or so trying to figure out if a quick hack was possible. Good
