That's probably caused by the dashboard glitch that accidentally orphaned 
packages a while ago.

It might be nice to know which ones are still working and building. I 
think that the 2 games which are not in x86_64 don't build anymore. 
Eventually, we'll need to rebuild them all to have the licence included in 
the package. If they don't build anymore and if there are no patches/fixes 
out there, it's no use to fix their licence in svn.
