I don't think this will be easily possible. It's easy to checkout a
particular tag in git. In xserver, for instance,
$ git checkout xorg-server-1.5.1
And then build as you would from master.
However, you'll have to figure out a mapping from the released tarball
versions to the associated tag in git. I also don't know if
git_xorg.sh or build.sh support building from particular tags. It
might be possible with jhbuild.
Building from tarballs should be much more straightforward if you just
want to get Xorg-7.4. There are lots of scripts floating around the
net, but here's one in particular:
