The svn route will take longer and use more bandwidth than simply
keeping your own copy of what you need.

Surely not if it does an "svn up", because then it will only download
the differences (which will normally be none).

The svn information is stripped out (by the find command), which is actually quite important since keeping it in will approximately double the size of the source archive. Without this information svn up is not possible. Having said this you could maintain 2 copies of the source, one with the svn information left in and one without and just make a copy of the 'live' to the one which is used as the image of the distribution tarball. This is then stripped, autogen'ed and tar'ed.
