GFDL definition of "Modified Version"

>From section 1 of the GFDL:
     A "Modified Version" of the Document means any work
     containing the Document or a portion of it, either copied
     verbatim, or with modifications and/or translated into
     another language.

Would emacs20_20.7-13.1_i386.deb fit the definition of "Modified Version"
above?  It is clearly a copyrightable work, and it contains the Document
(usr/share/emacs/20.7/etc/GNU for example) copied verbatim.

If so, section 4 of the GFDL requires that work (the Modified Version ~= the
work containing the document or a portion of it) to be distributed under
"precisely this license".

Debian can not distribute GNU emacs under the GFDL, can it?
