Thanks.  A few more days is fine.

Any progress testing git head?

I've only managed to do basic build/check testing so far, though across all the platforms I normally test. The one problem so far is that some platforms don't have a sufficiently recent SCons to include the CheckProg() function.

I'm not convinced that a configure check for tar is even necessary, since in the majority of cases, tar isn't even used, and if one does try to use it when it doesn't exist, the error from the OS should be pretty self-explanatory. If it were trying to locate a default tar program under multiple possible names, some equivalent of CheckProg() would be needed, but I don't see any code trying to do that.
