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 :/
