If using the EPEL repo isn't an option, perhaps you can download and 
one-way transfer the RPM. The EPEL package listing is available online:

And a direct URL to the latest SSG RPM:

If you need the *absolute* latest, since you're downloading the source, 
you can 'make content' and transfer the files in the output/ directory.

Still missing where that tarball is coming from, though. It shouldn't be 
generated anywhere in the source.
