There's nothing wrong with having binary files in a source release, and
some just can't be generated. A trivial example: a bitmap image file.
The fact that a file is binary, no matter what it's used for, can't be
reason for holding back a release.

Subversion, for example, has whole repository snapshots in its test
suite. I've never heard any complaints.
