in the psutils package the License from the original author states

"The included files, and (and their uuencoded forms) are
(to the best of my knowledge) copyright Apple Computer, Inc."

Indeed in /usr/lib/psutils in the gnewsense package (deltah) there are those 2
postscript files, without any copyright notice or hint where they come from.
Even the author of psutils doesn't seem to be sure.

Unless proven otherwise, I think we must consider those two files as non-free.

I wanted to mail this list first, to hear your views about this
before opening a bug report.

Technical, those files are used by fixmacps(1), which  "fixes" PostScript 
generated from a Macintosh PC that it works correctly with  psutils package 
(according to manpage).
