I do not think this section makes the license non-free. The terms seem
similar to the Artistic license which is explicitly listed as a free
software license .
This is article 5 of the Artistic license:
You may charge a reasonable copying fee for any distribution of this
Package. You may charge any fee you choose for support of this Package.
You may not charge a fee for this Package itself. However, you may
distribute this Package in aggregate with other (possibly
commercial) programs as part of a larger (possibly commercial)
software distribution provided that you do not advertise this
Package as a product of your own. [...]
