Well, it is preferred if it is feasible, for sure.  However, it is not
easy to reproduce the archive contents only from the git contents.

What the current archive creation script
(gettext-tools/misc/add-to-archive) does is to build and install the
distribution tarball and copy files from the installation directory.


* some files are from maintainer's autotools (config.rpath,
  mkinstalldirs, etc.) installation
* it is not known which files to be included in archive.dir.tar, until
  running "make install"
