From: David Laight <>
List: source-changes

Module Name:	src
Committed By:	dsl
Date:		Thu Nov 11 22:39:03 UTC 2004

Modified Files:
	src/distrib/utils/sysinst: util.c

Log Message:
Specify --chroot and -h to tar so that it will chroot into the target
filesystem and then follow existing symbolic links in that filesystem.
The choot is required to make absolute links be processed correctly,
and must be done by tar because the program (and input file) do not
exist inside the chroot.
Fixes PR install/5010 and install/8090 (at least)
