I did a quick grep and I found that Battle for Wesnoth includes its own copy
of dejavu-sans, wqy-zenhei-gb2312 and sazanami-gothic. I believe all three of
those have healthy licences but it's a bit silly of it to keep its own copy
around instead of using the system version.
When I have some time, I'll see what - if anything - others are doing about
that and what I can do about it on FreeBSD.
