tar usage in pkgsrc

Seems that removal of pax from bootstrap broke at least some packages (my 
current bulk build is in very beginning).

The problem seems to be that the tar from pkgsrc pax doesn't imply -p if 
running tar as root, but libarchive tar, gnu tar, the tar in solaris 10 
(and probably others) do. If a build is run as root, it might happen that 
there will be world-writable directories/files in packages.

At the moment broken packages are editors/emacs and cad/geda-examples. Or 
is it my (DragonFly) problem only?
