Install Rar in Fedora 17: make rar archive files

Plenty of resources explain how to install unrar support in Fedora, but what about when you need to create rar files, instead of merely extracting them?

Rar has licensing issues which is why it isn’t available in standard Fedora repositories. The package ‘Unrar’ is available in rpmfusion repositories, but to get rar compression support you can install one of these two non-Free packages:

rar-3.8.0-1.el6.rf.i686.rpm (32 bit)
rar-3.8.0-1.el6.rf.x86_64.rpm (64 bit)
