I don't see any mention of the OFL-1.1 for this font. In fact, the font
comes with a ReadMe.txt that says this:

"This font family is freeware and can be used freely for personal and commercial purposes."

Looks good, but no permission to modify. As for redistributions, it says

"You may share this font on CDs, websites,... with the following restrictions:

- Modification of the font files is only allowed for personal use - don't distribute a modified version of the font files!
- Do not rename the font files!
- Do not sell the font files!
- Do not pass the font files without this textfile!
- Make sure you have downloaded the latest update from www.dafont.com for best optical results."

So, modification is not allowed. That makes the font non-free. If
empty-epsilon depends on this font, then empty-epsilon has to go to
