Obfuscated code is not real source code.  If real source code is not
available, then the program is not really free software.

Is the program being released in that way by the developer?  If so, it
is not a "violation" of the GPL.  (The developer is not going to sue
itself for copyright infringement, after all.)

But it is nonfree software, so if you want to make free software
you should not use it.

I don't know.  If you provide more details, I could ask a lawyer.
