I completely agree.

When we accept this, what comes next?

FlightGear packages with inbuild espionage and spam features?
Dialers? FlightGear with inbuild advertisement for cigarettes, drugs and 
cleaning agent?

As a consequence we should create a clean and official Mac package, anyone

Maybe it also helps to inform sourceforge about this,
do they allow such misuse of their webspace?
