Well... no license *restrictions* would be freely distributable, but
no license would make it undistributable.

GJ does have a license - at least, there's a license on the website
presumably supposed to apply to it - but that license doesn't allow
modifications.  GJ also doesn't appear to come with source (unless I'm
looking in the wrong place...).

'freeware', incidentally, is usually used for software distributed without
charge, in binary-only form.  So such software is not 'free' in the FSF
(or Debian) sense of the word free.
