on #xen channel on freenode, we discussed how to use a local seabios git repo in a build using the rc4 tarball.

Any problems with this approach? I used it for a build today.
----- snip ------
git clone git://xenbits.xen.org/seabios.git
ln -s ./seabios seabios-dir
tar hczf seabios-dir.tar.gz ./seabios-dir --exclude=./seabios-dir/.git

//while in xenroot after untarring the tarball (its best to script this)
cd ./xen-4.5.0-rc4
(cd ./tools/firmware/;cp ~/seabios-dir.tar.gz ./;tar xzf ./seabios-dir.tar.gz; rm seabios-dir.tar.gz)
--------- snip -----
Now your cached seabios will be used instead of the usual remote clone
