What else do you want to ship in a tarball?

No, I can assure you that this has *nothing* to do with FFmpeg making
releases or not.
MPlayer does releases without support from the auto* tools just fine. I
don't see where make dist would help in the process. Just compiling a
snapshot on your machine is not enough anyway. We generate a test
tarball and compile it on as many architectures and platforms as we can
