oaklisp: contains 500kB binary in source


(I'm not subscribed to debian-legal)

I just noted that oaklisp has a 500kB binary called 'oakworld.bin' in
src/world.  oaklisp is GPL. It seems one can re-create this binary with
oaklisp, but to build/use oaklisp, you'll first need the .bin. So, there
is no real bootstrapping provided AFAICS, in any case, it isn't used
since the oakworld.bin is provided in the source tarball.

Is this acceptable? For example gcc also cannot be rebuild without first
having some C compiler. But gcc is a different beast.

When a conclusion is reached, could you inform me and potentially file a
bug on oaklisp?
