I compared he list of non-free and thus excluded packages of freeslack[0] with 
my list
of excluded packages in ConnochaetOS [1]. ConnochaetOS excluded following
packages which freeslack does not.

* ap/ghostscript-9.19-x86_64-2.txz 
  ConnochaetOS provides an modified/libre version of Ghostscript
  without nonfree JPEG XR support, based on Parabola's build [2]

* x/font-bh-ttf-1.0.3-noarch-1.txz  
* x/font-misc-meltho-1.0.3-noarch-1.txz  
  This are non-free fonts according to Parabola's blacklist.[3] I
  re-checked and indeed the license of this two fonts is non-free
  because it allows no modification.
