I looked into that, and it turns out I made a different mistake: on 
FreeBSD 13 I accidentally tested with 2020b not 2022b. So you're right, 
2022b's make_traditional_tarballs also fails on FreeBSD 13. Sorry about 
that mistake.

Oh, I thought you were running "make traditional_tarballs" (the subject 
line of this thread). If you're running "make rearguard_tarballs" I 
think I now see why it's needed.

One worry is that if we release a new version 2022c right away with the 
installed patch, we'll run into some other issue on macOS that would 
mean we'd need to release 2022d, 2022e, etc. To prevent that, can you 
please try running the rest of your build procedure with the rearguard 
tarball? If that works, we can release 2022c with more confidence.

To help you try that out, I built the rearguard tarball and you can pick 
it up here temporarily:


Here's the output of 'sha512sum' on it:
