Not at all. Neither the MIT nor BSD licenses demand distribution of the 
sources, but they are still Open Source.  The sources only need to be 
available, either with the distribution, or on a website, etc. 

Note that the OSD does not require that all incarnations of a package be 
Open Source forever until the end of time. It only requires that the copy in 
your hands be Open Source.
