If you own the copyright, you can do that.  That way, people who use and
modify your build scripts will have to release their binaries under the
GPL, but OTOH, people can use your binaries under the OFL.

I think it's nothing different from MySQL, Trolltech (Qt), Innotek
(Virtualbox), etc. selling binaries under a closed source license to
those who dislike open source for some reason.
