TarDiff compares the contents of two tarballs and reports on any
differences found between them. Its use is mainly for release
managers who can use it as a QA tool to make sure no files have
accidently been left over or were added by mistake. TarDiff supports
compressed tarballs, diff statistics and suppression of GNU autotool
