I've just run it on my installation of gNewSense and this was the result:

ttf-gentium               Gentium TrueType font

  1 non-free packages, 0.1% of 1266 installed packages.


I've just checked and according to:

Gentium is released under the  SIL Open Font License, which is fine according
to the FSF.

I don't know what the "Badly formed dpkg-status entry" means for emacs though?
I uninstalled emacs and the message went away, reinstalled and it came back

I've come across this before on a Sarge box. The issue was some field
that vrms was expecting, but I never fully tracked it down. It would
be something nice to fix, but that would probably be best suited as a
bug/patch to Debian.
4 year old bug at this stage. That page also answers the accuracy question.
