NEWS for Version 4.1.3


  * ob-buildopk now checks for a bug in BusyBox versions before 1.22.0
    that causes tar to add in reverse order entries listed on standard
    input with the -T option.  This bug causes packages to fail to
    install and uninstall cleanly due to data files being stored after
    the directories that contain them.  This bug was exposed by changes
    in opkbuild version 4.1.0.
  * ob-buildopk now checks for the "touch" utility's "-h" option at run
    time instead of configure checking for it at build time.  This will
    allow ob-buildopk to detect and make use of changes to BusyBox's
