Ok. Thanks for posting this. I am getting warnings from tar when running make dist. I also the files not included in the tarbal that gave me the warnings. I will have to look into this somehow. If tar has no such limit why is it doing this?

From the gnu tar website:

Archive format defined by POSIX.1-2001 specification. This is the most
flexible and feature-rich format. It does not impose any restrictions on
file sizes or file name lengths.

So I think we should be ok with suitable software?

tar has a limit of 99 characters per file. This is a problem because some dir in actions go deep enough to exceed this. We need to start thinking of a new solution.
