If you compile it yourself, the files will not be exactly the same.
I'm not sure if timestamps are embedded in binary files on Linux, but
even if not, the odds that a different compiler will produce the exact
same files as his are unlikely. It means you have to link against the
exact same libraries as djb.
So, "makes it impossible to distribute binaries that aren't compiled by DJB
himself" sounds pretty accurate to me. It may not be the original
intent of the license, but what it looks like.
