The GPL doesn't let you rely on someone else's source distribution,
unless you have an arrangement with them to do so.  Yes, I've been
down this road with the FSF many times...

Consider, for example, if the "someone else's" site decides to remove
their copies of everything (happens all the times - it's called
"upgrading" :).  Now your binary distribution has no corresponding
sources.  So the FSF's rule is "same site, same method" -
i.e. http://*.foo for binaries, http://*.foo for sources, etc.
