make -f tools/star/Makefile

gives following error

tar --xform 's!parrot-[^/]*!parrot!' -xvzf src/parrot-5.5.0.tar.gz
tar: Option --xform is not supported

OS X 10.7.4

$ tar --version
bsdtar 2.8.3 - libarchive 2.8.3

BTW: I know that this tool is only used by person who creates release. If it cannot be made OS-context-free without significant amount of work then this issue can be closed or left as low priority task for some future refactoring.
