In a word, yes. It’s redistributable, but not modifiable. From the license:

In 11.3, all the Broadcom devices that were supported in 11.2 will still
be supported by b43, and (drum roll) it will also support the BCM4312.
Unfortunately, the units with the N-PHY (mostly BCM432X) will not yet be
supported and tose will need wl. Code development for such devices is
still in progress.
This was not intended a a complaint, just noting that I tested with stock install before trying to add stuff from pacman. Is there something I missed that would have led me to run this past you? If you’re the guy, I’ll start pinging you for any broadcom issues I have (although, there haven’t been many in recent months).
I have a BCM4322 device, I’m open to testing updates if you need another tester. Although I’m in the middle of a move right now so won’t be able to test anything until mid July (I’m connected through hotel wireless and wifi tethering from my droid).
Anyway, I’m glad to hear that wl driver is in packman now.
