You can distribute compiled binaries only if you distribute all the
interface definition files for building them under GPL-compatible
terms.  There is a special exception for some cases, but when that
special exception does not apply, it does not matter what the mere
aggregation clause says, because that clause is simply not about the
compiled binaries section of the GPL.
