He isn't bundling anything. "make check-dist-tarball" takes the tarball
that "make dist" generated, extracts it into /tmp and runs "make check".
The issue is that the new extraction also tests whatever plugins you
happen to have installed in ~/.bazaar/plugins (or presumably in your
site-wide configuration as well).
Potentially 'make check-dist-tarball' should be running 'bzr selftest
- --no-plugins' since it isn't otherwise isolating the release from the
rest of your installation. (If you run bzr.dev, you probably have newer
plugins as well, which may not be compatible with a 2-3 weeks-since-rc1
