:For some unknown reason both libarchive tar and gtar are broken on
:DragonFly - they are preserving permissions of extracted files (like in
:case of -p) if executed by root.
:It doesn't seem to affect a lot of cases (you rarely run tar as root etc),
:but breaks hell a lot of pkgsrc packages.
Is pkgsrc using the system tar or the tar from /usr/pkg? If the
tar used is under pkgsrc's control then it needs to be patched
in pkgsrc, I guess.
