seems to be non-free to me.  I've no idea why they say this at the
end:

"
      This copyright notice is based on the one published by the Free
  Software Foundation, sometimes known as the GNU project.  The idea
  is the same as theirs, ie the software is free, and is intended to

  distribute this software.  Nobody has the right to prevent anyone
  else from copying, modifying or redistributing it.
"

since it doesn't seem to me that it's even GPL-compatible.  The
original copyright date is 1989; I guess it was a more naive time.
