When building my package with rpmbuild, I'm getting the following error:

error: create archive failed on file
cpio: Bad magic

I've tried reinstalling cpio and glibc, and I've got enough space
left. I can view AUTHORS fine with cat, and even compress it with
cpio. The strange part is, this error also occurs when using koji -
see the build log at

The source rpm is at

Any help is appreciated!
