That depends on if you want anyone to package your beta release in order to
get more people testing. If so, I suggest that the tarball reflects the
actual version -and- is not just a copy of trunk. Here's what I just tested
that worked fine.
$ svn di configure.ac
--- configure.ac (revision 3809)
+++ configure.ac (working copy)

$ autoreconf -f -i -v
$ make distcheck -j5
torque-2.5.0_beta1 archives ready for distribution:
