Yeah... :)

Yes, you could, but it would require manually downloading each package. 
I suppose we might be able to build a target into the next version of 
the scripts that will dump the urls for each package in the build to a 
wget script. That's something to think about...

The Makefiles in trunk handle the sources a bit differently than the 
tagged version you'll be using. For the 6.1-2 scripts, you want each 
package you're going to be using to be downloaded into the 
packages/[package-name] directory. Alternatively, you could put them all 
in one spot and then create a symlink in each packages/[package-name] 
directory to the appropriate tarball or patch.

A lot of work :/
