No need to worry:

    "Because the byte-compiled code is evaluated by the byte-code
     interpreter, instead of being executed directly by the machine's
     hardware (as true compiled code is), byte-code is completely
     transportable from machine to machine without recompilation.
     It is not, however, as fast as true compiled code."
