Log Message:
Update tarsnap to version 1.0.33.

Changes since version 1.0.32:

        - Tarsnap now caches archive metadata blocks in RAM, typically
          providing a 5x - 10x speedup and reduction in bandwidth usage
          in the "fsck" operation and when deleting a large number of
          archives at once.
        - Tarsnap's internal "chunk" metadata structure is now smaller,
          providing a ~10% reduction in usage on 32-bit machines and a
          ~30% reduction in memory usage on 64-bit machines.
        - Tarsnap's --newer* options now correctly descend into old
          directories in order to look for new files. (But note that
          tarsnap's snapshotting makes these options unnecessary in
          most situations.)
        - Multiple minor bug fixes and cleanups.

Changes since version 1.0.31:

        - A bug affecting the handling of the --nodump option on Linux
          (and in most cases rendering it inoperative) is fixed.
        - A workaround has been added for a compiler bug in OS X 10.7 (Lion).
        - The NetBSD "kernfs" and "ptyfs" filesystems are now excluded
          from archival by default.
