I ran into the 1st problem with console message about "/"
being full described below. I also tried David's 1st suggestion
and pax didn't work at all.
Can someone else what I need to do to install this snapshot

"/" being full:
I believe pax honours the TMPDIR environment variable.
Could you try setting it to /mnt/tmp before running
MAKEDEV needing grep:
This sounds distinctly bogus, could you submit a PR?
Sounds like it was a non exportable snapshot - try
extracting secr.tgz after install.
