misc/buffer, and misc/cstream in ports are good for this.

Thanks.  Would this decrease the ability of other Unixes being able to
read the tape?  For example, using pax (which can read tar archives)
or GNU's tar?

no just use -b in other unices too :)

When reading from the tape using tar (bsdtar from FreeBSD 6.2 -- and,
yes, I'm preparing a cvsup as I write this :) ) the tape drive's Alarm
and Fault LEDs are lit up and then camcontrol devlist no longer shows
the tape drive.
