The patch available in
only modifies an ejabberd core file: web/ejabberd_web_admin.erl

So, I think that yes, you can copy your patched *.beam files from a
source compilation to a binary installation. If you want to be sure
there will be no problems, you should also verify that:
1. You run exactly the same ejabberd version in both installations.
2. You run exactly the same Erlang version in both installations. To
check this, look at the output of 'erl' and compare the numbers. For
example, in my system I have BEAM 5.5.5 (which is included in
Erlang/OTP R11B-5):

$ erl
Erlang (BEAM) emulator version 5.5.5 [source] [async-threads:0]

Eshell V5.5.5  (abort with ^G)
