Why is it called libtar1 when it provides libtar.so-1.2 ?
Also you only have -release 1.2 as the LDFLAGS option.
There is no soname ? How about specifying -version-info ?
I would drop the -release, and use -version-info 1:0:0 or something
like that. But I would start with discussing with upstream to fix
the current behavior. It will probably lack a lot of
cross-distribution binary portability.
