Thanks for testing and fixing.

I'm not familiar with that corner of tar/sed.  What does the extra S do?  
Where is that documented?
tar --transform="s:^:ntpsec-${V}/:" ...
tar --transform="s:^:ntpsec-${V}/:S" ...

I added PIVOT.h last Jan 29, so this has been broken for almost a year.

Is gitlab running option-tester weekly or monthly?   Can it test make-tarball 

  I have updated PIVOT.h
  Is testing make-tarball on Mark's list?
    (before doing the mechanics of the release)

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
