No, modification without distribution is section 1. Under section 6, all
binary versions (compiled versions, etc) must comply with section 4. And
under section 4 you must either contribute your changes (as source) back
to the original project, change the name, or release your source code
under the Artistic License or a copy-left license. Distribution is
distribution, whether it's binary or source.
