A tarball for distribution should not contain anything that has not
been committed to version control.

If you have content that you do not want to appear (yet) on the release
branch, then make a branch for the release candidate, tag a commit on
that branch and the checkout that tag to build the tarball.

Tags are cheap, so there is no reason not to tag the -rc1 build in the
tree, and then tag the actual release later on. If both tags point at
the same commit that is not a problem.
