I noticed that /usr/pkg/bin/cpio on a Linux x86 machine is broken.
Trying to use it to copy a directory tree fails randomly on some files.
find /foo/bar | cpio -pdumv /destination/directory
(unfortunately I can not give an example print out as I don't have
access to the Linux machine now)
Searching briefly through the bootstrap mechanism it seems that
archivers/pax/files/* are slightly behind what is now in src/bin/pax.
Could this be part of the problem?
