This approach doesn't work because a plain git checkout of the ELPA packages directory lacks the index files needed. update-archive.sh is supposed to build these files, but it doesn't seem to be able to bootstrap itself --- if .changelog-witness doesn't exist, achive-prepare-packages fails. The update script also assumes that it's being run in an isolated git repository.
Right now, I think I'm going to skip most of the package.el niceties and just symlink directly into my copy of ELPA HEAD, but that's not a good solution. There really should be a good way of using an arbitrary local directory full of elisp as an ELPA repository.
