There's the command "make distribution" in /usr/src.

Of course, it's only the sources (scontrib is part of the sources).
Those are not needed for running the operating system.

Yes, of course. First, download
which is scontrib.aa ... scontrib.bb, along with install.sh. You can then
use the command
# ./install.sh contrib
which will concatenate the archive parts scontrib.* and extract them
info /usr/src (or any other place you may specify).
