I guess I was thinking if the concern is the distribution has been
compromised by attackers they could produce a bogus hash file, but not
a GPG signature (at least hopefully not one signed by me).

Well, I just did a "make dist", which as I read it just invokes "gzip"
without any additional options (but it does set the GZIP variable, which
sets --best).  The gzip I used claims to be:

% gzip --version
Apple gzip 264.50.1
