Erm -- why? 

rpm -qlp sharutils-4.6.1-1.2.x86_64.rpm
gives
/usr/bin/mail-files
/usr/bin/mailshar
/usr/bin/remsync
/usr/bin/shar
/usr/bin/unshar
/usr/bin/uudecode
/usr/bin/uuencode

and a bunch of documentation.

None of these are all that useful these days. I haven't seen uuencode or
uudecode used in ages -- these days, it's easier to use something like
mutt -a to attach a file to be emailed, and it will be sent as a MIME
attachment, which is more robust and better supported about everywhere.

I'm more surprised it isn't in Extras by now.
