There are resource forks, but I have a MacBinary encoder to deal with  
that, so a unix archiver is fine.

Currently I'm only building miniperl, so IO::File isn't available  
(which explains some of the errors in the tests).  But I was able to  
use a core-modules-only tar from PPT after replacing IO::File method  
calls with the corresponding built-in operators (though that script  
doesn't create archives) so I may be able to hack one of the modules  
you suggested to work for me.  Archive::Tar looks like the safer bet.

Thanks for the tip.
