I can't see anything wrong with using BSD tar as /bin/tar and GNU tar as 
/bin/gnu_tar or something.

They are currently installed as /usr/bin/bsdtar and /usr/bin/gtar, with
/usr/bin/tar being a link to one of them. The question is which one :)
	We can always do something similar to CCVER based selection, and
	default to GNU tar.
