Appears to be different from faac case, because this one doesnt have a
GPL license, so it could be in non-free repository.
This is whats in COPYING:

The 3GPP TS 26.204 V 10.0.0 reference code has a commercial license.

To use package compiled by this code, you may need a license from
3GPP/Via Licensing.
