You may or may not consider this dispositive, but the definition of
source code from GPL v3 is 

  The "Corresponding Source" for a work in object code form means all
  the source code needed to generate, install, and (for an executable
  work) run the object code and to modify the work, including scripts to
  control those activities.

So a makefile or equivalent is required.

On a more practical level, Debian has to be able to rebuild all of the
binaries from source.  If you can not do that, then that would be an RC
