Just from your words: "To fit" is one definition of "adapt".  Adaptation
is one form of derivative work.  Derivative work is an exclusive right
of copyright.

Furthermore, software that builds on but does not modify other software
could be described by any of the three verbs in "or any other form in
which a work may be recast, transformed, or adapted."
