Indeed there is no legal issue anymore. And IcedTea/OpenJDK now include
(pick up the system installed) rhino to support javascript. I am not
sure how the tests that you say fail are exactly failing. Do you have
some more logs?

Might you be bitten by this issue?
"javascript script support through rhino should not be on bootclasspath"
If the issue above comes from using a non-system installed rhino, then
there is a workaround mentioned in the comments of that bug report that
might work for you. But if so, it would also be good to make your
package work against the installed rhino on your fedora system.
