I also have snes9express_1.42-7 on amd64 that Build-Depends on
The problem is that I have no idea which license I'm going to agree with
when installing/using something from non-free.
I would prefer a solution like the one for building non-free packages
and that there would be a list that gets approved for which packages
might be safe to install and build something with.
