The source is not available. You have to ask for it to the author.

This one I think is popular only in Korea. I package it, anyway.

There is also rar/unrar e unace.
unrar is available at Freshrpms, and unace at Livna.
I have my own package for rar based on the binaries in the site.

I used Requires (hint) for these 3 packages.
But I think it will force the installation of the packages anyway.

Maybe Axel can explain better what Requires(hint) is for.
It should be only for documentation purposes, I guess...
