The version you pulled out of bugzilla is a much older revision. The text
you're worried about isn't in the latest version of the Liberation Font


Paragraph 5 says (in its entirety):

5. General. If any provision of this agreement is held to be unenforceable,
that shall not affect the enforceability of the remaining provisions. This
agreement shall be governed by the laws of the State of North Carolina and of
the United States, without regard to any conflict of laws provisions, except
that the United Nations Convention on the International Sale of Goods shall not

In fact, the wording "destination country" that you quote, never appears in the
current license.

The only font package that still is under the old license terms seems to be the
Fedora 8 package, definitely not rawhide as you've claimed.

Closing as NOTABUG.
