Yes. That's quite accurrate. One of the files had an evaluation license
left over by mistake. But it appears as if they have not yet changed
that in the code they make available.

Getting it to work on a non-Darwin platform requires a little work
though. CommonCrypto has CPU specific assembly for a lot of stuff and
unfortunately that assembly uses some Mach-O specific keywords that need
to be cleaned up. Is started doing that a while back but then I got
distracted. If you're interested, I can put the code in an accessible
place somewhere.
