I'm guessing that you also didn't remove /usr/bin/tar and /usr/bin/cpio
and that for some reason you hae /usr/bin before /bin in your PATH.
try "make pakage PKG_VERBOSE=YES" and then you _should_ see exactly what
'tar' command is being run by pkg_create.
Of course pkg_install really should be fixed to use just the standards
compliant features of the native 'pax' command line interface.
