Thanks for the tip. I used Mercurial archive to create those tars:

   hg archive -t tgz -p 'bindings-common-1.1' ~/bindings-common-1.1.tar.gz

I'll check if this is known in Mercurial, specially the weird
output got from 7zip. Meanwhile, I'll be uploading as soon as
possible new versions of those packages with

   runhaskell Setup.hs sdist
