It's the other way around

frankly, getting anyone to say that taking valid, standard to
International standards C++ code and having a compiler convert it to an
executable makes that source derived from the binary (and affected in _any_
way by the compilers license) should be a long shot.
Source is unaffected, the binary is. You can continue to sell source
under any license after said compilation - not so fo the binary. There were
a lot of precedents where runtime package (needed to run the compiled code)
required separate license (often on per-seat basis).
