Rogério is right, Adobe Utopia is free software. It is already 
included in <http://xorg.freedesktop.org/releases/individual/font/> in 
the font-adobe-utopia-type1-1.0.4.tar.gz tarball, which includes the 
following license in its COPYING file:

> Permission to use, reproduce, display and distribute the listed typefaces
> is hereby granted, provided that the Adobe Copyright notice appears in all
> whole and partial copies of the software and that the following trademark
> symbol and attribution appear in all unmodified copies of the software:
>         Copyright (c) 1989 Adobe Systems Incorporated
>         Utopia (R)
>         Utopia is a registered trademark of Adobe Systems Incorporated
> The Adobe typefaces (Type 1 font program, bitmaps and Adobe Font Metric
> files) donated are:
>         Utopia Regular
>         Utopia Italic
>         Utopia Bold
>         Utopia Bold Italic

So, please build a new orig.tar.gz for xfonts-scalable including the 
beautiful Adobe Utopia!
