Not clearly. Selling GPL software is perfectly legal, as 
long as you leave the license unspoiled and provide the way 
to download the sources. This is the biggest probleme here: 
no reference to the license in the selling page, nor to the 
original program name. (And I don't want to spoil $4 to 
check that)

Ebay Recordable Media policy is not very clear:

"The following are examples of items that may not be listed 
on eBay:
Compilation of 500 "freeware" and "shareware" programs on 
one CD-R 

Nothing is said about GPL programs. I guess the Ebay's 
strategy is not to offend big players (Adobe, MS), but in 
the other hand they just don't give a damn about people 
selling "free" material, even without telling it.
