According to a majority of people who have looked into the GPLv2 in depth
and also accoding to the FSF, you are required to provide the source code to
anyone who requests it. To my knowledge this interpretation has not yet been
"validated" in court.
For the FSF view, see

We are stuck with technology when what we really want is just stuff that
