I have posted about this before.
I have even posted a Notice to Extension Builders
Base system drirectories do not belong in a dsl extension. These are improperly made extensions.
You can actually run a properly created dsl extension with unionfs, not that that would be desireable.
I have only stated not to do so because, I have not had time to
police every extension submitted and lately many dsl extensions are not in compliance.
If you simply tar -ztf amsn-tcltk-095-ver5.dsl you will quickly and easily see the non-complicance.
Easy fix for any such extension, using the above as an example:
1. tar -ztf amsn-tcltk-0.95-ver5.dsl > list
2. Using your favorite editor, edit list and delete base system directories
3 tar -T list -czvf amsn-tcltk-0.95-ver5.dsl
