So two issues:

1) Pedro's concerns on Category-b tarballs stored in svn

2) Infra concerns about a build system that "phones home" and
downloads additional files from subversion

To resolve both issues we need to remove build dependencies on *all*
download dependencies on svn tarballs, not just category-b ones.   If
there are only category-a ones we should move them to Apache extras as
well, right?

Or is this not an issue?
