I'm looking at how feasible it is to swap my old enlightenment "Nightly"

could just use the git service but one of the things that my upstream
are especially talented in is breaking builds from within tarballs
generated by "make dist" so my question is has anyone looked at pulling
the current git master, then running "./configure; make dist" and then
building from the resulting tarball.

Your end goal is a binary build, so why bother with creating a `make
dist`-made tarball? Download from git, run autoreconf, configure,
make all.

The binary build is one of my two end goals the other is testing the
"make dist" tarball because thats how my upstream ships there releases
and they manage to break it reasonably often.
