My experience is similar - FreeBSD subscription CDs have never attracted
duty and have enentually arrived.  Boxes of give-away CDs have attracted
lots of duty.  More expensive items (BRU and Applixware) have attracted
duty.  I suspect that the Post Office (or whatever they are now called)
have a de-minimus limit for duty, below which it isn't worth their time
to collect it.
