Actually my tarball generation logic already goes as follows:
- checkout $ref in qt5.git
==> cascades into module checkouts
- for each module: git archive HEAD ...

Which has worked nicely enough for tip and tags. It starts to creak when
qt5.git doesn't have a tag to match the released version.

That I kind of reasoned.

And that was it. PEBKAC for this bit.

Apparently I need to update the tarball generation logic thus: "absent
the tag, assume master"
