Why?  Both of these files are DFSG free, merely just a waste of space.
You're of course not allowed to use prebuilt binaries, but they're not

There is source for them and you can build them using nothing but software
included in Debian main -- that's all that counts.

They take 0.6% of the source tarball, so the waste isn't that big either.
