Follow-up Comment #2, bug #63867 (project make):

I think the recent email is because the tar options are also used to generate
the release tarball, not just to generate the tarball containing error
results.  Note that we manage these options simply by exporting the
TAR_OPTIONS variable, which means every invocation of tar by GNU make will use
these options.

Sorting the release tarball (and the other options here) is something that
people prefer, to allow for reproducible builds etc.

I think it will work better to simply reset these options when generating the
test results tarball, rather than changing the global settings.  I will do
