/bin/cpio doesn't accept a combination of -i (extract) and -t (list) options, 
although cpio(1) suggests -t is only valid in combination with -i.

$ mkdir test
$ cd test
$ echo >foo
$ echo foo | cpio -o > arch
$ cpio -i -t < arch
usage: cpio -o [-aABcLvzZ] [-C bytes] [-F archive] [-H format] [-O archive]
               < name-list [> archive]
       cpio -i [-bBcdfmrsStuvzZ6] [-C bytes] [-E file] [-F archive] [-H format] 
               [-I archive] [pattern ...] [< archive]
       cpio -p [-adlLmuv] destination-directory < name-list
$ cpio -t < arch
quickfix: using -t in isolation works, e.g. 'cpio -t < arch'.

This is apparently fixed in src/bin/pax/options.c 1.108:
  Do not throw a usage message for -i followed by -t
  since 'cpio -itv' is a valid command.

...but only fixes up to and including 1.106 are included for netbsd-5 or
