Debian policy, for example, is to rebuild everything:

	1. To match the dynamic libraries they distribute.
	2. As an assurance against trojan horses - the source will then
	   match the binary.

Regarding the sending back of modifications, please read the APSL, IBM Public
Source license, or the ATT license and use their text. The APSL is at
http://publicsource.apple.com/ , I think.
