If you still think that Automake is in the position to do something
about this, then please provide more details (as I'm not exactly an
expert in archive formats portability).
It seems pax has a potential bug which leads to the whole build hang.
When use a large GID(>2097151), pax failed to generate file, then if
use the generated file as pax input, pax cannot recognize the format and
wait input from the terminal.
1. mkdir conftest.dir
2. sudo chgrp -R 12345678 conftest.dir
3. sudo pax -L -x ustar -w conftest.dir> conftest.tar
4. pax -r< conftest.tar
Then pax will definitely hang.
Why are you reporting this to the Automake mailing list? Ralf kindly
pointed you in the right direction, and asked you to provide details
_if_ you still think Automake is in a position to help. I don't see
you suggesting what Automake should be doing differently, instead, I
see a pax bug report sent to the Automake list.
I'm not meant to bug report, just a reminder :-) , Thanks.
