The GPL is clear that one cannot satisfy its requirements merely by
pointing to sources that someone else happens to distribute.
If one distributes executables, then one also has the responsibility
to distribute sources, even if the sources are identical to someone
else's copy.

This topic came up last week with respect to a Mac port, and Richard
responded there the same way that I expect he'll respond here; please see
the thread starting at <http://debbugs.gnu.org/cgi/bugreport.cgi?bug=10656#23>.
