bochs-dlxlinux RPM ships pre-built disk-image of linux kernel + shell tools with no source code

Description of problem:
The bochs-dlxlinux RPM contains a file
which is a bootable disk image containing Linux (ancient 1.3.89 !) and a collection of userspace tools (grep, awk, tar, etc, etc).
There does not appear to be any source for for these binaries. CVS appears to get them pre-built from the file dlxlinux4.tar.gz, again with no source present. The website listed in the README of dlxlinux4.tar.gz does not appear to exist anymore.
This all seems questionable from a license compliance point of view.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Is this useful? I think this needs to go.
Ok, since this is obviously a licensing problem, and since there is no way to fix this I've removed the dlxlinux subpackage.
