Hi --

I'm doing lazy evaluation of this problem -- meaning, if anyone spots
an obvious reason/fix for it, that's cool, otherwise I will try to
track it further. I don't know whether it's platform-specific.

The problem is that in 1.9 (tested with 1.9.0-0 and today's trunk),
gem has trouble with the archive-tar-minitar gem, because it can't
deal with the accented 'a' in Fernandez.

Platform is Mac OS X Leopard, ruby 1.9.0 (2007-12-25 revision 14709)
[i686-darwin9.2.0].

Here's the output:

sh-3.2# gem install ruport
