I've been trying to get this work but I'm left with one odd little
problem.  The resulting tar file is missing the .rel file.

The interesting thing is if I fire up erl it works:

Eshell V5.0.1.1  (abort with ^G)
1> systools:make_tar("February2001").
ok

$ gunzip -c February2001.tar.gz | tar tvf -
...
-rw-rw-r-- 501/501         206 2001-02-14 18:29:13 releases/February2001.rel


There is something quite odd going on here.
