Whether you sell it or not is entirely not the point. Go read the 
license here:


(it's not too long, and not too full of legalese).

I've talked to some friends who are fairly familiar with this sort of 
thing, and they all agree, there's no way to distribute the static 
version without including the object files.

Personally, I don't see this as a problem. My server is dedicated to 
running BF/DC/EOD, so even if I wasn't already running a recent enough 
distro, it wouldn't be a big deal to blow it all away and start over 
from scratch. If anyone is looking for a good distro where the dynamic 
binary works great, I can recommend Slackware 9.
