Conclusion: I found files that (in my opinion) may be non-free:
Can you say why you think the licence is non-free?
gNewSense have taken a laid-back approach with regards to the original
Artistic License (, ), but it has been deemed non-free by the FSF.
So I think we should remove those packages and ask the copyright holders
to consider changing the license.
Those files pdftk uses have the following statement:
* This software is the confidential and proprietary information
* of Sun Microsystems, Inc. ("Confidential Information"). You
* shall not disclose such Confidential Information and shall use
* it only in accordance with the terms of the license agreement
* you entered into with Sun.
Looks non-free to me, especially because I can't find that license
agreement it speaks of anywhere in the source package.

And or file bugs against the correct packages.
For some reason Marco can't log in to bugs.gnewsense.org, so I'll create
the bug reports.
