Improve tar check if bsdtar is installed
If bsdtar is installed, fix script error for tar version detection. bsdtar does not provide all expected command line (long) options like "--hard-dereference". To ensure compatibility, mark version of tar as 'invalid' and trigger build of 'host-tar'. [Peter; slightly reworded commit text] Signed-off-by: Heiko Abraham <abrahamh@web.de> Acked-by: "Yann E.
