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?
