On NetBSD/sparc64 5.0.1 pax reports problems about unknown file type
and GNU extensions while extracting pkgsrc-2009Q2.tar.gz.

A diff between the resulting directory and a directory extracted with
GNU tar shows

  # diff -ur pkgsrc-pax pkgsrc-gtar
  Only in pkgsrc-pax/archivers/libarchive/files/libarchive/test: 
  Only in pkgsrc-gtar/archivers/libarchive/files/libarchive/test: 

- download pkgsrc-2009Q2.tar.gz
- use pax on NetBSD/sparc64 5.0.1
  # pax -zrf pkgsrc-2009Q2.tar.gz
