I want to use open-vm-tools-nox11 on a 7.0-RELEASE box without using the
port tree on it.
So I wanted to build a package for this port on another 7.0-RELEASE
machine, wiche have the port tree installed and up-to-date.

But, here's what's happening with either "pkgcreate -p" or "make

# make package
===>  Building package for open-vm-tools-nox11-102166_4

Registering depends: icu-3.8.1_1 libdnet-1.11_2.

tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors.
pkg_create: make_dist: tar command failed with code 256
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports/emulators/open-vm-tools-nox11.

And when I install this package on the destination pc, It fall in the
same error and so vmblock.ko, vmhgfs.ko and mount_vmhgfs are not
Note that on the packaging machine, the port is properly installed and
all those modules are present, the problem is only at the package

Can you help me to solve this issue ?
