Yes, you get everything you need to build Ant or Ivy yourself if you
follow the respective build instructions.

What we've put on our download page is a general recomendation for any
download of software, You should be totally sure you are installing
what you expect it to be. We offer PGP signatures as a means to
verifythe download hasn't been corrupted.

You need an OpenPGP implementation for your platform - most likely
GnuPG.  With the first command of the instructions you import the KEYS
file (that you should have retrieved via HTTPs directly from an ASF
server, not a mirror), after that PGP/GnuPG knows the key that we have
used to sign the files.  For the second step you need to download the
PGP signature file next to the source archive and then you use PGP/GnuPG
to verify the signature.
