Why doesn't mindi work with RHAS 2.1, RHEL 3, Fedora Core 2 or RedHat 9 ?

It seems that the version of tar used at that time is picky about simlinks, and exit with an error when it find .. in paths. Which is the case for gawk. A workaround is to issue:
# ln -sf /bin/gawk /usr/bin

Same may happen with smbmount
# ln -sf /usr/sbin/smbmount /usr/bin

and loadkeys:
# ln -sf /bin/loadkeys /usr/bin

Another possibility is to upgrade your tar version by using 1.15 instead.
