I think it is OK as written - arguments to X and f modifiers in same
order as in the chXf. But if it bothers you, try 

tar chfX $startdir/$filename $exclude $pkgname


[pd@arnold pd]$ echo junk/y > xfile
[pd@arnold pd]$ tar cvhXf xfile junk.tar junk
a junk/ 0K
a junk/y excluded
a junk/y.crypt 0K
a junk/y2 0K
a junk/R-intro/ 0K
a junk/R-intro/CVS/ 0K
a junk/R-intro/CVS/Repository 1K

Yup. Works.
