I would think so, because I fetched it in the common way, i.e.

fetch http://dl.google.com/earth/client/current/GoogleEarthLinux.bin


the relevant part of my Makefile looks like this

PORTNAME=       google-earth
PORTVERSION=    6.0.3.2197
#PORTREVISION=  1
PORTEPOCH=      1
CATEGORIES=     astro deskutils geography
MASTER_SITES=   http://dl.google.com/earth/client/current/:current
DISTFILES=      GoogleEarthLinux.bin:current
DIST_SUBDIR=    ${PORTNAME}/${PORTVERSION}
EXTRACT_ONLY=   # none
