That is the wrong quotation to show this is non-free (^^;
GBDK is free for non-commercial use:

 lcc is available free for your personal research and instructional use
 under the `fair use' provisions of the copyright law. You may, however,
 redistribute lcc in whole or in part provided you acknowledge its
 source and include this CPYRIGHT file. You may, for example, include
 the distribution in a CDROM of free software, provided you charge only
 for the media, or mirror the distribution files at your site.
