Update of bug #17000 (project gnustep):

             Open/Closed:                    Open => Closed                 


Follow-up Comment #8:

I installed 'star' and found out that it now supports the 
exclude-from option, like GNU tar. :-)

I tried both a standard 'yum install star', and downloading
the latest star and compiling it by hand.  'yum install star'
didn't create the 'gnutar' symlink (even better as it prevents
the whole confusion in the first place), while compiling by hand

Anyway I configured my gnustep-make to use star and it seems 
to work fine in both cases.

I don't think it's worth spending more time on this problem,
which seems rather unusual.  Since 'star' now includes the
exclude-from option, the problem (already rare) will become
more and more infrequent as new versions of 'star' get
rolled out.
