problem with tar on 5.1?

according to the man page for tar --exclude-from and -X are supported.
This command does not do what I expected it to do:
tar -cz -f/usr/local/tmp/RoddieRodHome.tgz /home/roddierod
Now I would expect that this would create a tar gzip file called
RoddieRodHome.tgz and tar ball of my home with every thing but the files in
.pan. But it does include the .pan directory.
Is the --exclude-from not supported even though it is in the manpage?
