You cannot untar a tar file created by GNU tar with any other tar
command, for example the Solaris tar command, if there are files whose
pathname exceeds 100 characters.

For people who know this, the solution is right there, install GNU tar,
or untar it on another machine with GNU tar, and move the directory
structure over.

For people who doesn't know this, it could be quite frustating.  They
usually redo the download several times before realizing the problem
lies elsewhere.
