	The GARCHIVEDIR does nothing to the checksum rule.

	Your best bet is to set GARCHIVEDIR to some place where you
want all of the source tarballs downloaded on your fast-network
machine.  Say, ~/garchive/$(DISTNAME)/ for a good default.

	Now cd into meta/gnome-desktop and do a "make deep-garchive".
Now you can burn that ~/garchive dir to CD or zip disk or
what-have-you, and take it home.  At home, put it in ~/garchive on
your build machine, and set GARCHIVEDIR to ~/garchive/$(DISTNAME)/
there as well.

	Alternately, you can just go to meta/gnome-desktop and do a
"make deep-checksum" and just re-tar-up the garnome dir and take that
home with you.

	The above advice will grab ONLY the stuff needed for the
gnome-desktop metagarball.  If you want to slurp EVERYTHING, do what
Mr. Hunt recommended, and run "make paranoid-foo" where foo is
garchive or checksum depending on which technique you are trying.

A: No.
