Make sure the package complies with the license, it didn't before it was
removed.  (This is a problem of Arch packaging, not upstream.)

The other problem is that it includes code from otherwise nonfree fonts
and we don't know if the author had permission to use them under a
different license.

Don't, unknown license issues are ok.
