GPL 2 is not forbidding selling of commercial code, but if buyers get
binary, they must have option to get all sourcecode and it is licensed
under GPL, so they can resell the whole system. (or similar). In this
case getting money from "binary" is not the way..

Licensing issues are so hard to understand, so consulting a real jurist 
is recommended.
