Thank you for replying.

Of cource, it does not depend to the Matthew Kwan's S-boxes expressions.
Kwan's code was designed for a general RISC processors (with having 2-source
operand logical operation).

To get my own code, I used the automatic code generator, which optimized by me
for MUX and some 2-source operand instructions.
Perhaps, the generator is more specialized than Marc Bevand's sbox-gen.
(The idea of Bevand is not the best though thinks it is wonderful as the method
 for the request of the shortest number of gates.)

It was careless.
I will change to a dual license of BSDL/GPL, and to GPL version here:

(The code for Cell SPU is bundled)
