https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=257063 --- Comment #3 from Robert Clausecker <firstname.lastname@example.org> --- (In reply to ice from comment #2) Okay I get your point. Here's a proposed action plan: - I have reported the incompatible GNU tar emulation upstream, so with some luck, star will get better at mimicking GNU tar in the future. - I am going to make installing a gnutar binary optional with a non-default option as I agree that the behaviour is a bit surprising. I am planning to push this change with the next schilytools release which upstream told me will come in a week or two. - as a temporary workaround, unlink the gnutar binary: rm /usr/local/bin/gnutar - I believe I have identified the problem with firefox-esr. In the file toolkit/moz.configure there is a line that says. check_prog('TAR', ('gnutar', 'gtar', 'tar')) If you change this line to say just check_prog('TAR', ('tar')) the problem should go away. Please test this change and let me know if it fixes the issue for you. If yes, I'll go ahead and file a patch for www/firefox-esr to harden its build in the presence of devel/star with the gnutar binary installed. -- You are receiving this mail because: You are on the CC list for the bug.
