Then copyright applies the usual way, which means it’s non-free.  :-/

Could you get in touch with the author(s) and see whether they’d be
willing to publish it under a free license?

In the meantime I’ve reverted ‘sbcl-cl-xmlspam’ and ‘sbcl-dbus’ (which
depends on it) because the #f ‘license’ field of ‘sbcl-cl-xmlspam’ was
breaking evaluation:

The error was actually a ‘match’ error in (@@ (gnu ci) package->alist),
which is not surprising; what’s more surprising is that the actual error
happened in the inferior, but it was re-thrown by the caller, which
means the backtrace was fairly confusing:
