I don't think so. Think of a "package" in source code - a tarball of 
linked (some modules reference others modules) components. What does 
it have to do with 17 USC 117 as far as preparation and distribution 
of that "package" is concerned? Nothing, I think.

And a single "executable" is just another (binary) form.
