   I assumed that the VMS details were the only remaining mystery, so
all I did was look at the generated file names (on VMS), not what was in
the files, so almost anything could have happened, and I might not have
noticed it.

   I also assumed that the patch was based on something newer than the
original 1.14 source kit I was using, so, even if I had noticed a
problem, I probably would not have been suspicious.  For example, around
here, nothing worked right until I made this change:

ALP $ gdiff src/options.h_orig src/options.h
<   bool backups;                       /* Are numeric backups made? */
>   int backups;                        /* Are numeric backups made? */

When "backups" can be only zero or one, saying "--backups=4" does not
have the desired effect.

   If someone lets me know when the next "tar" kit appears, then I might
be able to do a little more testing (with a little more care).
