They are in Emacs releases 23.2 and 23.3.  They have been in all
    pretests since emacs-23.1.90, dated 2009-12-09.  They were merged
    into the Emacs trunk in bzr 97804, dated 2009-09-28; here's a
    URL for that:

We have made a very bad mistake.  Anyone redistributing those versions
is violating the GPL, through no fault of his own.

We need to fix those releases retroactively (or else delete them), and
we need to do it right away.

I see two quick ways to fix them: to delete the compiled files, or to
add the sources they are made from.
