I started noticing that when I was building some more packages from the
then-latest stable pkgsrc branch (2018Q1).

The weird thing is that packages built earlier in by rebuild process
didn't have this problem. The ones built after a (un?) certain point do
have the problem.

I tried this:
    ls -tr /scratch/packages.amd64-7.0-gcc49/All > /tmp/file
    while read file ; do echo $file; tar tvfz "/scratch/packages.amd64-7.0-gcc49/All/$file" 2>&1 ; done  < /tmp/files | more

and it seems the oldest tar file that elicits the message "tar: File
extended headers posix ustar archive...." is pkg_install-20180325.tgz.
The one before is pkg_chk-2.0.9.tgz. The gtar archive hasn't been built
yet at that time!

-rw-r--r--  1 root     wheel    961906 Apr 15 11:38 pkg_install-20180325.tgz
-rw-r--r--  1 root     wheel   1031231 Apr 15 15:40 gtar-base-1.30.tgz

From pkg_install-20180325.tgz on, the packages seem to elicit the
message. (I didn't automate the check if this was true for 100% of them,

pkg_install includes pkg_create, which would create the tar files. So I
guess the culprit is there.
