I have just RPAfied it; while doing so, I found a problem in your
release process: the directories in the tarballs you provide are created with
wrong permissions (0555) and tar might not be able to create further
files/dirs inside:

archive-tar-minitar-0.5.1/archive-tar-minitar.gemspec
archive-tar-minitar-0.5.1/bin
archive-tar-minitar-0.5.1/ChangeLog
archive-tar-minitar-0.5.1/Install
archive-tar-minitar-0.5.1/install.rb
archive-tar-minitar-0.5.1/lib
archive-tar-minitar-0.5.1/Rakefile
archive-tar-minitar-0.5.1/README
archive-tar-minitar-0.5.1/tests
archive-tar-minitar-0.5.1/bin/minitar
tar: archive-tar-minitar-0.5.1/bin/minitar: Cannot open: Permission denied


This also affected your Diff::LCS release; in order to get the sources,
I had to edit the tarfiles manually.

This should fix it:

$  ldiff -u Rakefile.orig Rakefile
--- Rakefile.orig       2004-09-26 18:26:11 +0200
+++ Rakefile    2004-09-26 18:26:22 +0200
