Good, so then how does ELPA build the release versions from the raw
repository content?

True, but AFAIK that only means adding a *-pkg.el file and selecting
which files end up in the package archive.  They both don't build a
distribution version, but expect to be able to use the sources directly.

At least for Org, there are provisions to build the necessary version
and autoload files via elisp, this could be extended to the *-pkg.el
file.  Another option would be to use the existing makefile that creates
a valid package archive.  But the ELPA packager would need to make use
of those functions and the mechanism to do so should be general enough
to be usable by all packages that need it.
