If you do "shallow" you won't be able to use the git tags.
However, "shallow" will give you the latest versions of the packages
(rather than what was in place a year ago), but chances are some of them
no longer build.

There's a whole "howto" about how to build packages from source.  If you
really want to do it right, use poudriere, but this is more complicated.
