That's right.

Validator's Makefile contains rules for recreating all generated files.
 Unfortunately Makefile is not included in the 1.2 tarball which is a
packaging bug that should now be fixed for future releases.  Until then,
it can be downloaded from the validator Mercurial repository,
http://dvcs.w3.org/hg/markup-validator/raw-file/tip/Makefile

The combined.js included in the validator 1.2 release tarball was
generated with yuicompressor git revision d36d447 (pre-2.4.5).
