Maybe I don't quite understand what VirtualBox upstream meant by this
sentence, but if the SeaBIOS license does not allow modification,
then it would not be DFSG-free, so the fact that VirtualBox is in
contrib would actually be an error, because it should rather be in
non-free. And that would be irrespective of the compiler used.

Am I missing something here?
