Is the EAR file expected to be portable according to J2EE specs? In other words, can I deploy an EAR file constructed by WebSphere's Application Assembly tool into WebLogic?

No. It is not portable, each vendor had its own deployment descriptor.

Well, the EAR file should be portable as far as development and application assembly is concerned. But will not be deployable as is in a different application server.
Some of the server specific configuration files shall have to be added / modified, the resource manager settings will be different and so on ..
For example if I have simpleGUI.ear in JBoss, I need to have the JBoss specific configuration file jboss.xml, whereas in Weblogic it will be welogic-ejb-jar.xml & weblogic-rdbms something .xml, for ATG J2EEDynamoSpecifier.xml.
But as far as I know, the application will not have to be rebuilt
