	Some gzipped tar files, including the distfiles for pkgsrc/textproc/crimson and pkgsrc/devel/jakarta-ant
	cause problems when using the new pax-as-tar to do the extract stage of a pkg build (or to extract these
	files by hand).  The error message is

		===> Extracting for crimson-1.1.3
		===> Required installed package sun-jre13-[0-9]*: sun-jre13-1.0.7nb1 found
		tar: Invalid header, starting valid header search.
		*** Error code 1
	cd /usr/pkgsrc/textproc/crimson && make extract
