No, the "original" tarballs were prerelease code that was tar'ed into
tarballs that were named like, and looked like official ones and
dropped by the package's maintainer into MASTER_SITE_LOCAL, were
you can still find them. I strongly object to this practice of rolling
our own distfiles for use in pkgsrc.
This will also now start to break for people who have the old distfiles,
because DIST_SUBDIR hasn't changed.
Can we please just wait the extra week for upstream to prepare a release
instead of blindly jumping on the latest and greatest code from git?
