Probably yes.  In any case it is a complete licensing mess that should
be resolved as soon as possible.

This was discussed several times on dev-eng, here is one of the
threads on the subject:


Christoph Lampert did plan to reimplement this file some time ago


but he does not seem to have made much progress.  You may try to
contact him at chl at math.uni-bonn.de or gruel at gmx.de, maybe he started
it in the meantime or may otherwise help you.
Good luck
