Try removing all of the .o files. 
If you don't want to do that (i.e. avoid the recompile)

then try something like this:

tar cvf foo.tar src/*.c src/util/*.c

or you can get really fancy and try:
tar cvf foo.tar `find . -name '*.c' -print`

notice that the single quotes are different.
what's that? Want the world files too?

tar cvf foo.tar `find . \( \( -name '*.c' \) -o \( -name '*.wld' \) \) -print`

To get an idea of how much room your mud's files take up,
go to the mud directory and type 'du'
