Thanks. I fixed that.

The script is more a workaround than a final solution, yet. :-)

That it also copies ./lib/private/ results from here:

DIRS="private etc sysvol"
for d in $DIRS;do
      relativedirname=`find . -type d -name "$d" -prune`

The for-loop took all 'private' folders under $FROMWHERE. The important
one is ./private/. The other is just a side-effect. :-)

But ./lib/private/ isn't very large. So simply ignore, that it's in your
archive file in the end. You don't need it.
