As long as the sources are unmodified, it's perfectly ok to just make a reference to where the sources are available from. This has been the common practice in the GNU community for many years. I remember this was a discussion in the mid 90s if Linux distributors should/must provide sources for all the GPLed systems or just make them available on a web site or something similar. I remember my Red Hat 4 (1996?) distribution came with one installation CD and one source CD.

As long as the sources are available in the CVS or a tar.gz file for download, we're all ok.

Short answer: Don't worry.

Just a side note:

On http://www.gtk.org/download-windows.html, GTK.org stipulates:

You are welcome to redistribute GTK+ binaries, including applications
that bundle them, on other web sites, CD-ROM, and other media. You
don't have to ask for permission. That's one of the points of Free
Software. One important thing that the GNU licenses require is that
you must also redistribute the source code. This usually means at
least the gettext, GLib, GTK+, Pango and Atk sources.

Does this imply that GNUbg sources also have to include these sources?
