gitlab-ci: test re-buildability of distribution tarballs

Jan Vaclav requested to merge jvaclav/NetworkManager:jv/test-dist-tarballs into main


Adds tests for making a distribution tarball, and then attempting to build NM from its contents.

It builds tarballs with autotools and tests it on autotools itself, and then meson; and also a meson tarball which it attempts to re-build with autotools.


Files have been left out from the distribution in the past by accident (e.g. 75027879, b2931c96) and hopefully this test will catch this type of errors.
