FreeBSD Port: evolution-3.12.11

A quick note to let you know that I had difficulty restoring data from a
backup (whatever version was running under FreeBSD 9.2). After a careful
look at the debug messages, it looked like the tar commands used in the
restoration used the option --strip-components=3 (or 2), and the tar
command barfed on that option (the '=' sign should be a space). Hiding
tar and linking tar to gtar fixed the problem. Perhaps the script(s) for
restoration should either lose the equal sign on the --strip-components
option or use gtar instead of tar?
