But anyone should be able to build TBB from the source tarball. At least,
this is how I used to build everything way back in the day when I built
all of the packages.

I didn't use the source repo. I tagged a release, built a source tarball,
and then built the packages from the tarball. This way our builds were
official, but at least others could build their own packages the same
way we did.
