[tz] leapseconds.awk missing from data tarball?

I note from the recent release notes that the leap-seconds.list file is
generated using leapseconds.awk.  Previous to this change, it was
possible to compile and install the tz files just using the tzdata
tarball.  As the leapseconds.awk file is only shipped in the tzcode
tarball, this is now no longer possible.  Would it be possible to ship
either the leapseconds.awk file, or a generated copy of
leap-seconds.list in the tzdata tarball so that the tzcode tarball is
once more no longer required?
