They do not comply with the GPL -- they require accounts and
off-machine "permissions" (i.e. a form of "licensing") to build...and
do not support a local build. Besides the fact that they don't
easily install and did not install under 11.4 and have not installed
under 12.1. Apparently I don't have the correct extra -required-
proprietary information needed to build those packages.

That's violates the GPL.
