No. See http://cr.yp.to/distributors.html.

But the original question was about djbdns-installer, and the patch
would be applied after downloading pristine sources from DJB's server.
This is okay, because DJB says "You are free to download the software
from my web server; you then own that copy of the software, and you are
free to compile it and run it." (from the same page)

    system and Linus Torvalds claims to be trying to take over the
    world.       -- seen on the net
