Go away, troll.  It's perfectly possible to have a license on a
package non-free that says "you may not port this package [to <foo>]"
(I know of at least one example one which use to several years ago,
but it became GPLed later), so even ignoring for a moment the
perfectly valid reasoning of "we don't want to", there's solid legal
reasons why non-free not only shouldn't but _can't_ be auto-built.
