The command line tool, package creates packages that are roughly twice as large as those created by haikuporter. For example, manually extract system/packages/perl-5.10.1-6-x86_gcc2.hpkg (9.61MiB) into its own directory and run package create perl-test.hpkg The resulting files size is 18.92MiB. Using package create -9 ... results in 18.92MiB as well.

The issue is that package create <package-name> (without the -C <dir>) will end up including the newly created <package-name> in the final <package-name>.

Using package create -C <dir> <package-name> results in .hpkgs of similar size to haikuporter.

I would consider trying to create the package inside the tree to be packaged a user error, but it certainly wouldn't harm to skip the package file explicitly.
