Well, that's a matter of definition.

I'll have a look at using another cross-assembler. Fortunately, there
seems to be a GPL'ed 6502 cross-assembler, so I'll have a look into
using that one instead.

It doesn't *require* proprietary software. The problem was that I
hadn't found a DFSG free 6502 cross-assembler (obviously didn't look
too far). Now that I found one, the point seems moot.
