Is not the production of executable binaries that run on nonfree
operating systems the 'feeding of data to nonfree tools'? 

Where does one draw the line regarding the various forms of output of
gcc/binutils?  It seems AGPL covers the output from the program; if gcc
was AGPL could it's output binaries only be used by GPL operating
systems as well?
