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,

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