I just remembered one more thing, please correct me if I am wrong.

Sometimes packages during installation, leave in the root system files that
are _older_ than the timestamp (mostly docs or configs), in a result
find can not track them.

This can be avoided, if during unpacking, either the '-m' or '--touch' tar
option is being used, so tar will not extract file's modified time,
or else from within the sources, execute the following 
find . -exec touch {} \;

But *this* is overkill, since tar can do the same thing with no cost.
