The same files, or very similar, are included with GNU enscript,
GNU R, and many other free software programs, so I am inclined to
say so.  At least in the US, it is arguable that they may not
even be copyrightable, because they are a collection of facts
without creative content.  (In the US, phone books are not
copyrightable for the same reason.)
