Thanks for both bug reports. I've blacklisted it. I haven't checked if it can be cleaned, so setting to postponed.

While reviewing z88dk_1.8.ds1.orig.tar.gz I noticed these various files indicate a non-commercial restriction. The FSF's Free Software Definition indicates that a free program must be available for commercial use, commercial development, and commercial distribution.


I'll submit this to Debian as well.
