No, you should be able to recreate the tarball by using the tag.  Too
bad that you can't exactly recreate the binaries -- a binary is what
it is, and rarely duplicatable 100%.

Who knows.  For years, I've got this in my .profile:

alias sup='cvs -z3 -q update -d -P'

It's the -d -P part that does it.
