Subversion had such a deps signed source package before it came to
Apache; later we discontinued that because some optional dependencies do
not have a compatible license, so instead we ship a script that
downloads the dependencies.

License issues may prevent Bloodhound from releasing such a source
package, but you'd know more about the details of that.
