That is one thing I didn't consider. It has always been beaten into my head
that you don't touch the original source and you take the time to create a
.patch to be applied though prepare().

I guess this is one instance where it would make sense to actually edit the
files in the source-tree directly in order to skip prepare.

Yes, the reference to --repackage was just a way of describing the state of
the build directory. Repackaging the same executables hoping something changed
is as productive as trying to destroy a shot-put with a rubber hammer...
