As a consequence of the runtime copyright, you may not be allowed to distribute an executable produced by GHDL without the VHDL sources. To my mind, this is not a real restriction, since there is no points in distributing VHDL executable. Please, send a comment (Reporting bugs) if you don’t like this policy.
