Well he said " Of course, if there is actually stuff in the tarball
that isn't redistributable, that's a different story." ..

We have been shipping patented code in freetype for a while (until it

So I simply do not know whether the "remove patented code from he
tarball" is simply paranoia or there is really a legal reason for it.
