Hello tarchivers,
test 95 "filename normalization" (incr08.at) fails with tar-1.28 (see
attachment testsuite.log).
There are 3 additional lines in the stdout compared to the expected

After searching, I found that the reason was I built tar from a directory
"tar-src" symlinked to "tar-1.28" and the function normalize_filename()
doesn't return the same path if the same directory is absolute or relative.

For the relative directories:
normalize_filename() returns:
Whereas the following absolute directories are left unchanged:

In the testsuite.log stderr output, there is an additional line compared
to the expected result:
  tar: ./subdir: Directory is new
  tar: ./subdir/dir1: Directory is new
  tar: ABSPATH: Directory is new
 +tar: ABSPATH/foo: Directory has been renamed from '.'
  tar: ABSPATH/subdir: Directory is new
  tar: ABSPATH/subdir/dir2: Directory is new
  tar: Removing leading `/' from member names
I think it is related to the normalize_filename() too but I didn't dig
