Replying to mirabilos:

Only GNU tar supports --long-options.

Long options are not used in recent version of vfs script .

I see two ways: [skip] This would break cross compilation though.

Cross compilation wouldn't be broken.

I’d need to be pointed to a specification of what exact arguments, input and output the vfs scripts receive and are supposed to output though.

You can found that in MC source tree (lib/vfs/mc-vfs/extfs/README) or in installed MC in you system (/usr/libexec/mc/extfs.d/README or /usr/lib/mc/extfs.d/README).

Thanks!

    64GNU cpio (-Hustar), paxtar, and GNU tar --format=ustar 
    75all create archives of this format; bsdtar probably does 
    86as well. However, I cannot cd#utar or “Enter” them in 
    97both mc-4.6.1-16 (MirPorts) and mc_3:4.7.0-1 (Debian sid).

    118After looking at tar.c I think you only support the legacy 
    129or vendor-specific/proprietary GNU tar archive format.
