Thanks. I've added a comment.

I suspect that upgrading the Ant version would work, or adding a 
explicit fileset exclusion to the ant build task.

I think it would be reasonable for Rat to maintain its own additional 
list of excluded directories independent of the build platform. I've 
opened a JIRA[1] but I think that this change would deserve some 
thought. So, I'm not proposing to address this for the 0.10 Rat release.
