you don't have to provide the source on the CD or anywhere near the
distribution.. you don't have to provide the source to everyone in the
world.. i.e. I can't get the Apple gcc source by asking them for it,...
my stunningly no lawyer view is that you must provide the
source to anyone who you have provided the binaries to and *requests* the
source from you... so if I get a developer CD from someone I have to ask
them for the source and they ask apple... now this is moot as I know
apple are providing their source to gcc via a CVS site and are also
submitting changes back to the FSF copyright assignments and all..
