Using latest pax from pkgsrc under Linux.
cpio -t -i < J.cpio

The cpio -t -i switches should list the contents. I have used it many
times with GNU cpio. Sorry, I didn't test this with native pax-as-cpio
under NetBSD 2.x.
I looked at source (./file_subs.c) for this but the error is identical in
two sections. I didn't look closely.
Well at least I was able to see the files :)
And cpio -i -d did the correct thing.
