Hi,
The licence of 2xSaImmx.asm[1] states that it can only be used for non-commercial purposes. This conflicts with the terms of the GNU GPL[2], and means binaries compiled with this file are not redistributable. We have manually removed 2xSaImmx.asm from our binary distribution in Debian, but it would be great if you could have the file relicenced under compatible terms (or, if all else fails, removed).

thanks for your work on this project, and please let us know if you have any further questions.
