No because the files in the tarball are needed to compile themselves. For 
instance, we need corlib for mcs to compile corlib.

We always will need a first install of a runnable version of the class 
library and mcs, so that mcs can build a new version of itself and then a 
new version of the class library. That is because mcs is written in C#
