That makes sense.

But since you keep the tarballs outside of the svn on a webserver 
somewhere you wouldn't normally expect the script to find the tarball, 
right? Unless you had already run this build once and downloaded it perhaps.

And when you are done you check in any of changes then delete the 
working directory where you had the sources checked out and tarball 
downloaded into? Or do you just leave it all alone? I guess anyone 
working on it would know not to check in the tarball.
