However, portaudio looks non-free to me.

    * Any person wishing to distribute modifications to the Software is requested to send the modifications to the original developer so that they can be incorporated into the canonical version.


However, it's included in Debian main, as part of source to audacity,
and libportaudio.  strange.

I'm sending mail to request updated information on this topic; I don't
know how this resolved.
