No. The tarball comes with a .configure file.
True, it also comes with translated man pages.
You should not run autoreconf
on the tarball. If you do, it will not build.
That was a bug that should be fixed now. As a matter of fact, we do run
autoreconf even in the Fedora specfiles which do build from tarball.
