            Bug ID: 213584
           Summary: tar's 'g' substitution flag is broken
           Product: Base System
           Version: 10.3-RELEASE
          Hardware: Any
                OS: Any
            Status: New
          Severity: Affects Some People
          Priority: ---
         Component: bin
          Assignee: freebsd-bugs@FreeBSD.org
          Reporter: d...@freebsd.org

When extracting a zip archive it may be required to replace the '\' with '/'. 
To achieve this the following command is used:

# tar -s'|\\|/|g' -xf /path/to/zip

however the substitution only applies to the first occurance per file.  This
has been confirmed to happen on FreeBSD < 11.  

See Port's commit 424052 for further details.
