It doesn't, of course.  What it does do is guarantee that the tarball
matches the tag that has already been laid down in CVS.

But there must have been more to it than that.  Peter is reporting
that the tag is on mutually inconsistent versions of some files;
which means that the problem was with the tagging operation more than
with the tarball-making.
