Yes, do 'python setup.py sdist --formats=gztar'.

You can find this yourself by doing 'python setup.py sdist -h' which 
will show (among other things):

Options for 'sdist' command:
  --formats         formats for source distribution (comma-separated list)
  --keep-temp (-k)  keep the distribution tree around after creating archive
  --dist-dir (-d)   directory to put the source distribution archive(s) in
                    [default: dist]
  --help-formats    list available distribution formats

And then a 'python setup.py sdist --help-formats' results in:

List of available source distribution formats:
  --formats=bztar  bzip2'ed tar-file
  --formats=gztar  gzip'ed tar-file
  --formats=tar    uncompressed tar file
  --formats=zip    ZIP file
  --formats=ztar   compressed tar file
