I thought that was the right thing, but evidently not. I think it
should be the result of
./ && ./configure && make dist
which I have not uploaded - perhaps Jeremiah can do this and put it on 

just now my internet connection has gone extremely bad - I'm hoping this email 
will get through, but I don't think I will be able to upload anything until the 
problem is fixed, which may be very difficult right now.

yes, please wait until a definitive tarball is created.
