Sure, but then you need to setup steps for making that gz and also to 
download and unzip it. It is a bit of a bother, but doable.

  * There are buildsteps for downloading files from master to slave.
  * Additionally, fetch the tarball via http. (Using wget?)

Related to your previous mail, the git-sourcestep is in
buildbot/slave/commands.py, not in contrib. (That is only the repository 
hook, IIUC).
