Hello David,

tarlz is not included in the FreeBSD ports so I'm trying to build it from

c++ -O2 -c create.cc -o create.o

#include<sys/sysmacros.h>               // for major, minor

Thank you very much for reporting this. It seems that sys/sysmacros.h is not part of POSIX, in spite of its macros being needed to encode/decode device numbers in tar/pax archives, and some POSIX systems do not provide it.

Could you, please, try including sys/sysmacros.h conditionally in create.cc and extract.cc like in the following example (or with other macro suitable for FreeBSD), and tell me if it compiles. Thanks.

#if !defined __FreeBSD__
#include <sys/sysmacros.h>              // for major, minor

Best regards,
