You must mean a derivative work of a GPL-covered work because the term
"extension" is also not defined in the GPL and/or copyright law.

Full stop once again for the same reason: the term "larger program" is
also not defined in the GPL and/or copyright law.

To repeat, snipping ambiguity/undefined terms it says just exactly what
the GFDL says (recall that under copyright law software is protected as
literary works modulo the AFC test):

"A compilation of the Document or its derivatives with other separate
and independent documents or works, in or on a volume of a storage or
distribution medium, is called an "aggregate" <snip "if" nonsense>. 
When the Document is included in an aggregate, this License does not 
apply to the other works in the aggregate which are not themselves 
derivative works of the Document. "

IOW, it's "mere aggegation" just like in the GPLv2, stupid.
