Why is OpenSSL not in non-free?

- the 3-clause BSD license is considered free
- the 4-clause BSD license with the advertising clause is considered
- both the OpenSSL License and the Original SSLeay License in 
  /usr/share/doc/libssl0.9.8/copyright contain the BSD advertising 
  clause in its exact wording

Does OpenSSL have to go to non-free, or do I miss anything?



       "Is there not promise of rain?" Ling Tan asked suddenly out
        of the darkness. There had been need of rain for many days.
       "Only a promise," Lao Er said.
