I missed footnote with copyright. X-(
It says,
--------------------------
--- notice ---
It is prohibited to redistribute this software alone for commercial
purpose, but the copyright holoder will not prevent anyone from
recording this software as one piece of free software collection in
CD-ROMs. 
--------------------------

I seems it doesn't match DFSG.
