while extracting the 1.5.3/i386 sets on -current, pax warns about GNU
extensions reading kern-laptop.tgz and kern-tiny.tgz, but aborts on
kern.tgz wanting a new volume:

% pax -zvf NetBSD/1.5.3/i386/binary/sets/kern.tgz 
pax: Trying to read GNU tar archive with extensions off
-rwxr-xr-x  1 root     wsrc     5036589 Jul  2  2002 netbsd
pax: End of archive volume 1 reached
pax: ustar vol 1, 1 files, 5038080 bytes read, 0 bytes written in 1 secs (5038080 bytes/sec)

ATTENTION! pax archive volume change required.
Ready for archive volume: 2
Input archive name or "." to quit pax.

the other sets extract without warning.
