I didn't knew that by now, CVS HEAD requires the GPL... besides,
the mikachan font set has its homepage on sourceforge japan
http://sourceforge.jp/projects/mikachan/) so i assume that its under
a osi compatible license. a electronically translated version of the
download page (which is all there is regarding licenses) says
something along the lines of "freely distributable but the copyright
stays mine, have fun". There are lots of other usable fonts in
XFree / X.org and even more come with suse (I dont have other
distributions to compare...).

now that is true.
but as i said, there are lots of usable fonts in the xfree/xorg
