Re: Building subversion server: a puzzle

As you've since discovered, Sun's "tar" is at fault. There's two "fixes"
for this (for the svn project) --
  - try to build a tarball with something compatible with broken vendor
    'tar' programs
  - put great big warnings on the download page about it <wink>

We do something like the latter for Python - see, for instance, the
second item on http://www.python.org/2.3.2/bugs.html#build
