Yes, that is the normal way to do things.

The source archive should basically be a copy of the SVN tag,
excluding any SVN-only files.

It should be possible to unpack the source archive, download any
required external dependencies (the procedure to do this should be
documented, e.g. in a README or BUILDING text file) and then
build/test the software from the unpacked source.

By the way, I don't understand why the RAT jar is in SVN; normally one
would expect that to be an external dependency.
