Darwin is more-or-less BSD.  But Darwin isn't Mac OS X and Darwin doesn't
include any fonts (other than troff fonts).  Looking at the license that
comes with the Mac OS X installer, it's pretty much identical to the
traditional Mac OS <= 9 license.

Clause 8 contains the same export restictions found in SqL clause 6.  
Most of the other OS X clauses explain that you own the media but not the
content and detail the cruel and unusual punishments awaiting should you
give/lend/hire out or install the software on more than the one machine.
