I was attempting to install print/teTeX on my Solaris 9/sparc system,
but tar|pax|cpio misbehaved:

===> Installing for teTeX-share-2.0.2
===> Becoming root@ss20a to install teTeX-share.

Rebuilding the bootstrap kit (and thus tar|pax|cpio) did not
alleviate the problem.  So far, the problem has only been seen
on my Solaris 9/sparc main workstation.  On MacOS X (10.2.8) and
NetBSD2.0G/i386 there is no problem.

I last built print/teTeX a few months ago and there were no problems
on Solaris 9/sparc.  Perhaps recent changes to pkgsrc have introduced
cd /usr/pkgsrc/print/teTeX-share
bmake install
