Untested, but roughly:

git checkout v1.6
make dist

Bootstrap clones the gnulib submodule (although you can save disk space
if you also have a clean gnulib.git elsewhere on disk and set
$GNULIB_SRCDIR in the environment appropriately); then copies the needed
files from that submodule into the main working tree.  Then the 'make
dist' step packages just the files that are needed for the tarball (the
files from gnulib that were copied into place, rather than the entire
gnulib submodule).
