    In a *binary executable* ?!?!  That's what I'm talking about here.

I am not sure if you are right; this might be impossible or it might
be easy.  I have never thought about what this requirement means for a
binary executable, because the question is not important.  I don't think
it needs to be possible to use text from manuals in a program.
A manual is free if you can publish modified versions as manuals.

Many free documentation licenses won't permit use of the text in
GPL-covered free programs, and practically speaking, this means I
can't use them in any of the programs I might want to use them in.
Whether the manual's text could be used in a free software package
with a license that qualifies as free software, but is not one I'd
want to use, is just academic.
