I'm adding a NOT patch file which does (I hope) what I mean. It was either that, or `emacs` the executable, which seemed over-the-top.

N.B.: I'm not recommending these exact changes. The errors in question come from `libtar.a` which doesn't include `common.h`, so I recklessly put the necessary `#define` statements. I'm only including the `patch` so you can use it for reference.

(file #46692)

Surely I can't be the first person to request an additional option to suppress the fantastically annoying "tar: Removing leading `/' from member names" messages.

I'm guessing something in --warning=keyword as described in section "3.9 Controlling Warning Messages".

What stuns me is that this wasn't the first warning added when the option was introduced.

Thanks for your consideration.

-Erik

p.s. Using `-C /` isn't an option since I'm doing backups, and by definition, my tar statement includes an absolute path.
