Using the Terminal:

cd /Applications
tar xvf 

Using the Finder:

Open two Finder windows. In one, go into the "Content of the package" of the Gargoyle.app in the downloaded package. In the other go into the "Content of the package" of /Applications/Gargoyle. Then carefully drag and drop each of the files from the dowloaded package to the same place inside /Applications/Gargoyle. There are three files, two in Content/MacOSX/Frameworks and one in Content/MacOSX/PlugIns.

Note that you need Gargoyle 2011.1. Gargoyle 2010.1 does not work properly on MacOSX Lion. It is not an Alan problem.
