Matthias, what do you think? If you think there are still issues with
these files could you add a bug report that blocks the IcedTea legal

The files are certainly there under 7, and they are removed by the
fsg.sh script. The Generation and Validation Tests that use them are
also there. I'll do a build and a make check to see what is happening
there.
