Currently when the user selects  "--include-sources" or sets
HAIKU_INCLUDE_SOURCES=1, the source archives specified in
build/jam/OptionalPackages are copied to develop/sources.

Would it be ok, to
 * copy them to  _packages_/Sources/develop/sources
 * AddVariableToScript $(script) : includeSources :
 * then in build_haiku_image
  mkdir -p _packages_/Sources/develop/sources
  addattr -t string "INSTALLER PACKAGE: NAME" "Source Code Archives"
  addattr -t string "INSTALLER PACKAGE: DESCRIPTION" "Individually
compressed source archives of included software."
  addattr -t string "INSTALLER PACKAGE: GROUP" "Options"
  addattr -t bool "INSTALLER PACKAGE: ON_BY_DEFAULT" false
  addattr -t bool "INSTALLER PACKAGE: ALWAYS_ON" false
  addattr -t float "INSTALLER PACKAGE: SIZE" `du -sb

This will allow the user to opt-in to having Installer copy those
source archives to the dest partition.
It'll resolve #5481 as fixed/invalid
#5785 is probably invalid already (though, i'm not sure how Installer
automagically handles the isCDPackages from the build system)

also, InstallSourceArchive could be further extended to support
subdirectory targets. eg :
# copy the source archive to

InstallSourceArchive BeZillaBrowser-2010-01-21-src.7z
        : haiku optional-packages
