Re: The draft Position statement on the GFDL

If so, what makes you think that chapters of a BSD manual which

That doesn't sound like it'd qualify for GFDL 7. Sounds like you'd be using Section 5.

And, as I said in the message you were responding to, while the GFDL
approach is unwieldy, it's less so than a "patches only" license could

Huh? A free patches-only license allows the results of compiling
patched source code to be distributed.

And how does this help when what you want to distribute from that program
isn't a binary?

If there is no "build time" then the first sentence of DFSG does not apply and that is not a free license. (BTW: DFSG 4 does not use the term 'binary'; I assume this is what you mean).
