That's my next step: compiling it on a test SlackWare box before trying on
my poor over-worked and under-organized backup server...

You could use a more robust tar like Jörg Schilling's star. In my

in features, posix compliance *and* robustness.

star may need some tweaking in the command parameter generation, though.
