Oh, okay, no I understand. I thought you wanted me to add the source
tarball to the binary zip, which doesn't make sense to me.

Yes, these ones are auto-generated, and not byte-compiled. The install
task only gzips those which are byte-compiled.

I didn't do this explicitly -- it's just the default behaviour of make
install. But you are right, I should disable this as Emacs can only open
these if there is a local gzip. I guess this is why you want it this
