No. It's about infringing the right on making a derivative work. IOW, 
RMS' own typical "Verbatim copying and redistribution of this entire 
[blah blah] are permitted provided this notice is preserved" covers 
compilations (packages), but not derivatives of his (kinda literary) 
idiotic work(s). My, what a proprietor! (It's akin to GNUish "mere 
aggregation" vs GNUish "derived" ("derived" falls under the GPL... or 
else... GNUish "mere aggregation" of GNUish "derived" stuff with 
something else aside for a moment).

Because *you* have to make a (an initial) "comparixon", not me.
