GPL 2(c) contains the modifications must be GPL'd requirement. It only
applies to "any work that you distribute or publish."

Section 3 contains the source distribution requirement. It only concerns
copying and distributing.

If I build gaim-encryption on my own machine, and don't give copies to
others, I am not required to license it under the terms of the GPL (or
at all, for that matter).
