Currently the 6.6.1 package is just a tar.gz of the associated Subversion branch which means it contains all of the associated .svn directories and management files. "svn export" should be used and will create a clean version of the source tree. This clean tree results in an archive which is 45% smaller than the current version.

[cstanton@localhost tmp]$ find . | grep svn

After removal of all .svn directories and rearchiving:
cstanton@localhost tmp]$ ls -l
total 4368
drwxr-xr-x. 7 cstanton cstanton 4096 Jul 16 15:13 acct-6.6.1
-rw-rw-r--. 1 cstanton cstanton 1596013 Jul 16 15:14 acct-6.6.1-no_svn.tar.gz
-rw-rw-r--. 1 cstanton cstanton 2869677 Jul 16 15:08 acct-6.6.1.tar.gz
[cstanton@localhost tmp]$

Depending on your version of tar it could be done like this as well:
tar cvfz archive.tar.gz directory/ --exclude='*/.svn'
