Bug#298960: freewrl: contains non-free fonts

Package: freewrl
Severity: serious
Justification: Policy 2.2.1

This package contains many Bitstream fonts. The README file does not
include a license, instead it states they were copied from Red Hat 7.2.
I downloaded that distribution, but could find no trace of the fonts.
Without a free license Debian cannot distribute thess fonts, and
therefore they should be removed.

To get replacement fonts, you can depend on ttf-bitstream-vera,
ttf-freefont, or one of the other free fonts packaged in Debian.
