I'm having trouble using dpkg-deb -b to build a package. I keep getting the following error:
Can't use format gnu: No such format 'gnu': Invalid argument
List: gnutar -tf <archive-filename>
Extract: gnutar -xf <archive-filename>
Create: gnutar -cf <archive-filename> [filenames...]
Help: gnutar --help
dpkg-deb: subprocess gnutar -cf returned error exit status 1
This is identical to the issue mentioned and fixed in this ticket: https://trac.macports.org/ticket/27702. The difference being that I'm getting the error from gnutar, not from tar, which doesn't make any sense at all. I tried the same process on a clean OS X install and get the exact same issue. gnutar --format gnu -cf works fine on my system with no error. Any idea how to fix dpkg-deb?
