Me neither, especially as we now effectively have different command line
args passed from sysinst to tar depending on the tar invocation (and this
is all hard coded). I'll have to make it a define in sysinst depending
on the seleted tar variant :-/.

Just for the record, I don't really care about different cmd line args, symlinks and security involved.

My expectation is that a modern NetBSD tar can extract a modern tar archive from other sources.

If it cannot do this we have failed.
