	NetBSD/hp300 1.4 and -current
System: NetBSD sweet-and-full-of-grace 1.4I NetBSD 1.4I (DEBUG) #5: Fri Aug 13 23:10:47 MEST 1999 bad@sweet-and-full-of-grace:/u/0/src/sys/arch/hp300/compile/DEBUG hp300

	The 1.4 tar aborts with a core dump when extracting the mysql distfile.
	The -current tar merely reports an ENOENT for a non-sensical file name.
	cd pkgsrc/databases/mysql-client; make extract
	No fix yet.
