Fair enough. And I should mention that the error I reported occurs on

WARNING: Host distribution "Ubuntu 10.04 LTS" has not been validated
with this version of the build system; you may possibly experience
unexpected failures. It is recommended that you use a tested
distribution.

(Other than this oddity with the perl package, things seem to work fine.)
Yeah, it's just a warning :)

This issue is rather perplexing. We're supposed to not be using the host tar
if it is older than 1.24 due to another bug in earlier versions - if an older
version is found we build tar-replacement-native before anything else gets
built. Was tar-replacement-native built on the machine where it was failing?
You can verify it built by just checking under tmp/sysroots/<native
sysroot>/usr/bin/ to see if tar exists there.

Cheers,
Paul
