Provide source as bzip2 instead of gzip. Bzip2 packages have a higher compression rate as gzip ones. The openSUSE build service for example prefers source in bzip2 instead of gzip in order to save space.

The difference in the tar command is:

tar -cjvf Verilog-Perl-3.035.tar.bz2

vs.:

tar -czvf Verilog-Perl-3.035.tgz

Older perl CPAN installers require gzip format.

Even if that wasn't the case, it's small and I wouldn't want people to have to think how to decompress it specially.
