Just to be pedantic, the command line used is "/usr/local/bin/gnutar
--exclude=precomplete --exclude=.mkdir.done -chf - ." (note *dash* chf), which
GNU tar going back decades as well as libarchive tar accepts just fine.

On a passingly related note, gnutar's man page claims to "emulate the GNU
version of the tar archiver". What GNU tar does or does not do right or wrong
is completely irrelevant. The claim is GNU tar emulation, not "this is the
implementation GNU tar should have been".
