Once again, you are deliberately misstating what the FSF said,
which was that GPLed programs contained on a Linux distribution
medium fell under the "mere aggregation" clause and did not

They made no such statement regarding programs built with GPLed
components, since in fact this is the opposite of what the GPL

Do you truly believe you gain some rhetorical advantage by
