Thanks.  OK, but please remove all the comments about tar unportability
in the tests.  It's so obvious.  ;-)
(and there are probably a dozen other places in the Automake source tree
that you'd have to put the comment at as well, for any amount of
consistency.  I think having one comment, the one that already exists in
lib/am/distdir.am, is fully sufficient.)
