In re-reading what I posted, I realized that it could be misunderstood to mean that simple rebuilding is made more difficult by the pre-patched tarball being the source; that wasn't what I meant, and I apologize for the error.  'just rebuilding' in this case should be read as 'simply rebuilding' or 'straight rebuilding' or similar; unfortunately English is a rather ambiguous language, and my particular choice of the word 'just' in this instance was particularly ambiguous.
