Wow I never caught that those files were in debian-cd. 

macinstall-cd.tar.gz contains an old version of Penguin, the mac
bootloader, which is packaged in contrib (19-3). I'm pretty sure I
used the penguin package when I was working on debian-cd for etch.

The source for penguin 17 is at

I'll have to let Christian answer for the licensing of 
cts_amiga_info.tar.gz. The rest of the amiga icons are in the d-i 
repo. If these have clear licensing (I'm pretty sure they do) then 
we should probably move them there too.

As I recall they were created either by or for Christian to use with
debian-cd. I don't believe they have a source form.

They probably shouldn't be living in tar archives anyway. :)
