Last year I submitted a patch to the main Makefile.in to make tar a macro.
Jan adapted the patch to Makefile.in.in and applied it to 21.2.x.
Would it be possible to add this patch to 21.1.13? It would make my job
of maintaining xemacs builds on several different unix variants much
easier, since I can then override the system tar with GNU tar with the
options I need (specifically -h)
