Can you include the config.log file ?

OS: qnx 7.0.x
tar: 1.34

I have crossbuilt tar to qnx.
Compilation run smoothly.
But when i try to create an archive on my target i get "Cannot stat: Not supported" for all files in subdirectories. Compressing files not in subdirs works fine.

directory structure:


Command: `tar cf ../xxx.tar *`

For file3.txt and file4.txt i get the error:

tar: subdir/file3.txt: Cannot stat: Not supported
tar: subdir/file4.txt: Cannot stat: Not supported
tar: Exiting with failure status due to previous errors

Is this a known limitation? Is there a fix?
