Somehow including all files on the command line may not be a good idea, because the length of the command line is limited.

The tar archiver I use (which I think is the one on Aminet here) has an option -T which could be helpful. Running tar without arguments describes that option like this:
-T F get names to extract or create from file F
So you can use List or whatever to get a list of filenames in a text file, then use the -T option to tell tar to read names from that file.

That version of tar is good for Amiga use since it preserves file protection bits, exact datestamps and comments, which other tar ports might not.
