It is currently not possible to extract the archive provided on  with bsdtar due to duplicated files in the archive. This could be caused by misuse of the -T or -I flags on archive creation probably resulting in corrupted archives (see ). GNU tar provides some logic that handles such corruptions and as a result doesn't fail extracting the archive.

include only one copy of VERSION in tarball
Seems like adding VERSION to EXTRA_FILES was an overkill.
Can you guys confirm that the patch fixes the problem? It seems to work fine here.
Note: you'll have to re-generate the tarballs with "make tarballs"
I can confirm the attached patch fixes the problem. Thanks.
Thanks, Patrick. Fix committed.

automake: include only one copy VERSION in tarball
The VERSION file is tracked by git (git ls-files), thus
adding it to EXTRA_FILES will result in a duplicate copy
within the final tarball.
Would it be possible to provide updated tarballs including this fix?

Doesn't seem worth it.
