    h 40 to 40 minutes.
    
    * Makefile (TARBALL_VERSION): New variable.  When defined, do not do

    [RELEASE_TARBALL_FILENAME]: Do not compute prerequisites when
    TARBALL_VERSION is defined; assume the tarball is present.
    * .gitignore: Ignore .tarball-version.
    * Jenkinsfile: (Generate release tarball): Generate a .tarball-version
    file, and stash it along the release tarball.  Explicit this should
