[gmx-developers] AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE(tar-ustar)

why is the tar-ustar paremeter used in configure.ac?
Occording to the automake Options documentation this ustar is only required
for filenames longer than 99 characters. All files are shorter. Thus the
default should be OK. The advantage is that without ustar it works also with
older versions of automake. The rest is compatible.
