Since a compilation is a translation into machine language, then the
resulting binary can be considered a derivative of the Program, according
to the GPL's section 0 (if I didn't miss anything there - IANAL).
Thus I think it can only be licensed under the GPL, unless of course the
author decides to release it under another license as well.
