If you have root access, do a:

$ man tar

and see what the "-l" option is supposed to do; perhaps you're not using the gnu version of man.

If FreeBSD doesn't use the gnu version of "man", and or the "-l" option doesn't do the same thing as "--one-file-system", then it's a bug and DA has to change their software.

Hmm.

On my FreeBSD 4.9 box, tar is gnutar and -l is the same as --one-file-system.

And compress via DA works fine.

So I guess not all FreeBSD intalls are the same.

We have 4 machines with FreeBSD 4.10, FreeBSD 5.2.1 and FreeBSD 5.3. But in fact, now I can't say which of them comes with bsdtar as tar by default because I have already replaced it with gtar manually on some of this boxes... :)
As I can remember they all was with bsdtar, but I'm not sure...
