Please elaborate what you like to point to when using the term "tar"?
The Sun tar implementation has _security_ bugs related to archives that contain
symbolic links but the same problem applies to the OpenGroup owned "pax"
implementation currently found at /usr/bin/pax.
"star" on the other side has no known issues related to symbolic links.
What are you talking about?
