Repeating false claims does not make them correct.
In order to create a derived work, you need to add own code of a sufficient
creation level. The simple act of compiling does of course not create a derived
In addition: if ever, mkisofs could be a derived work if libschily but not vice
Do you really like to tell us that compiling:
makes libc a derived work of the program "hello world"?
