On FreeBSD at least, this is not true.  Unless you specify the 'p'
(preserve) flag, untaring as root will leave all the files owned
by root.  I just untared the b4 source distrabution, and the file
permissions all look good to me.

The original poster mentioned an RPM and looking for a source release,
so perhaps the problem is with the RPM.
