Konrad Hinsen suggested a configure option that would only download the
tarballs of the necessary software, not actually build them.

This is a very good suggestion for scenarios where we want to do the project
on a high performance computing (HPC) scenario. For security reasons, HPC
systems don't usually have internet access. You only have SSH access to them
to manually copy files and run your process.

With this option, you can clone the project on a computer with internet
access, then configure it with an option like `--only-tarballs'. Once its
finished, the tarballs will be in `.build/software/tarballs' and you can
upload the tarballs to the HPC (along with possible input data and the actual
project source) to run it there.

Currently, the only way to make sure all tarballs are downloaded is to
actually build the whole software environment of the project (let the
configure script finish).
