Re: base.tgz no longer contains './bin/[' (in HEAD and netbsd-7)

I can confirm that this is a problem. There appears to be confusion about whether or not file names should be subjected to vis/unvis encoding.

"./bin/[" appears in the set lists and METALOG, as expected, but the "${MTREE} -CS ..." command in line 180 of src/distrib/sets/maketars changes it to "./bin/\133", and then the "${PAX} -dOw ..." command in line 199 fails to add the file to base.tgz, and it also doesn't print an error message about failure to add the file.
