seabios is GPL, so this is perfectly fine as long as you also provide
the source code used to build the binaries (as required by GPL).

If you are using seabios unmodified I'd recommend to place a upstream
git mirror next to the mame repos @ github.  qemu does the same on
http://git.qemu.org/, for GPL compliance reasons, and also because it's
more convenient that way for the seabios submodule we have in qemu.

If you have patched seabios you have to publish the changes too of
course, and I recommend to sent the patches for review and upstream
merge to the seabios mailing list (which I've added to Cc).
