Does emacs-24 contain all the sources and scripts that are needed
to create any generated files in the tree?

E.g. do we need to add
to admin/mac? It's ~ 1MB, and is used to create src/macuvs.h.

IMHO, this is more a legal issue than a practical issue.
Say we add the file to Emacs.  There is no point in re-generating src/macuvs.h 
unless the file changes, and then the one distribiuted with Emacs is not used 

But someone with insight to the GPL have to answer this.

Hi Jan,

assume you are kidding.

If not kidding, I'm still wondering, resp. asking: please make the GPL a text 
every Emacs core developer may understand without undergoing expensive 

Not to hide my personal view: of course there is no legal question. GPL requires the sources of built executable to be shipped, but not the stuff mayby useful for writing the sources.
