[erlang-questions] Building source, html and man .tar.gz files from github?

I've been building RPMs from the tar balls released on the
erlang.org/downloads page for sometime, and the process has been working
fine.  I tweak a couple lines of my .spec file, type make and about 5
minutes later get an rpm.

However, I'd like to be able to get minor releases for which the .tar.gz
files are not placed on the website.  Ideally, I'd like to do something

% git clone git@REDACTED:erlang/otp.git
% cd otp
% ./otp_build autoconf
% ./configure
% make dist

but that does not seem to be supported (which was a little confusing
because normally you get all those targets for free when using GNU
autotools, but I think that might be added by automake which does not
appear to be used).

I looked through the documents to see if there was any instructions for
making those .tar.gz files, but did not see any.

I'll probably just try to modify my scripts and .spec files to skip the
extract from tarball step, but was wondering if there is a way to get
those .tar.gz files for the source, html and man pages via the current
build system?
