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 [1].

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. [...]
