No need to change anything. You downloaded the file with a web browser,
which "helpfully" gunzipped it for you.

$ grep DOWNLOAD= makepasswd.info

It's a gzipped tarball, try downloading it with wget or curl... or if
possible, turn off the browser's automatic gunzipping.

$ file makepasswd-0.5.3.tar.gz
