GNU tar, when installed via pkgsrc from archivers/gtar installs as
${PREFIX}/bin/${GNU_PROGAM_PREFIX}tar, which is generally

When bootstrapping on non-NetBSD systems, we determine if pax is needed,
and if so build and install it as well as specifying GTAR in the
mk.conf.example file as ${PREFIX}/bin/tar.

Am I correct assuming that this should be
${PREFIX}/bin/${GNU_PROGAM_PREFIX}tar or am I overlooking something?
