The code uses "head -c" which is a GNU extension: $ man 1p head HEAD(1P) POSIX Programmer's Manual HEAD(1P) [...] SYNOPSIS head [−n number] [file...] [...] For example, on OpenBSD and HPUX there is no -c option, or it is used differently. Also Busybox doesn't have it. Are we better off by requiring GNU head instead of GNU ar? > Very nice. We should borrow that code and use it to eliminate the > need for deb2targz in portage. In PMS, this would have to go into EAPI 6, I suppose? Ulrich
