I can't answer this for sure (and I don't think anyone can), but I'm
not aware of any practical restrictions. You will have to ask your
local exports authority about restrictions in your country (and I can
bet half an apple that they won't tell you right out).

The MIT case you bring up is (I guess) just a standard legal
disclaimer. The only code that is copyright MIT is the authentication
stuff in libtelnet, and I don't think that would require any special
permissions these days. Also that code was exported from the US (back
then) with the actual encryption calls removed.
