            Bug ID: 261763
           Summary: tar fails to create iso file using -a option
           Product: Base System
           Version: CURRENT
          Hardware: Any
                OS: Any
            Status: New
          Severity: Affects Some People
          Priority: ---
         Component: bin

FreeBSD tar(1) has the ability to create .iso files via libarchive.

This syntax works fine:

$ tar cvf myfile.iso --format iso mypath

An alternate syntax allows tar to choose the file format based on the file
extension (in this case .iso), but this fails:

$ tar acvf myfile.iso mypath

Can't use format iso9960: No such format 'iso9960'

I've sent a patch for this bug upstream:
