The version of Tor in the gNS repos (if there is one) is hideously old
and insecure and should be removed. The recommended source for tor is
the upstream repo at

deb hardy main #Tor Project
deb-src hardy main #Tor Project

Freenet is hell to package. It wants to use its own JAR installer. It
also recommends the Sun java package from, which may or may not
be non-free at this point. In practice it works fine with openjdk, but
it would probably have to be patched for gNS inclusion.
