No, but it's a violation to distribute just the binary ls and nothing
else under these conditions. It's a minor violation and between
friends the FSF would of course ignore it. But if it were a big site,
with hundreds of mirrors, the FSF might reasonably worry that some
people would be getting the software and not knowing about the
freedoms they have.
