./archivers/bsdtar, Fast multi-format tape archiver

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 3.7.2, Package name: bsdtar-3.7.2, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

The libarchive library contains routines for creating, reading from, and
writing to different streaming archive formats, e.g. most popular tar
and cpio formats. Additionally, libarchive supports writing to shar archives
and reading from ISO-9660 (CD-ROM) images.

This package contains bsdtar, a high-efficiency libarchive front-end which
is [almost] wholly compatible with the ubiquitous GNU tar. It supports
advanced features many other implementations do not.

For your convenience, the installed bsdtar binary will not be linked
to any pkgsrc-provided libraries.

Log message:
archivers/bsdtar: avoid circular dependency with PKG_DEVELOPER checks

bsdtar is used as the default extractor for distfiles. It is installed
very early in the pkgsrc lifecycle, directly after bootstrapping. At that
point, neither of checkperms nor check-portability may be installed yet.

Log message:
Disable ACL support on ChromeOS.

For some reason, the configure script mis-detects acl support, then
fails to build because the header file is missing.
