It *could* contain such a clause..  If it did, then it would be non-free for
that reason.  If the redistributor was free to remove the click-wrap license,
then as long as it met other requirements of DFSG, it could be considered

I have seen software that has a click-thru GPL before.  I can't remember
offhand what the software was, but Ive definitely seen it.
