	tar complains of

	tar: Invalid header, starting valid header search.
	tar: Failed seek on file jakarta-ant-1.4.1/LICENSE <Invalid argument>

	when trying to make extract for the devel/jakarta-ant pkg.


	delete jakarta-ant pkg and any that it requires recursively
	back up to emulators/suse-base (since you have to upgrade it)
	and attempt to reinstall the jakarta-ant pkg.


	for me it was as simple as setting


	whereas none of


	helped.  that's not a "fix", though.  more of a
	workaround.  thank god i'm lazy and don't delete things in a
	timely manner.  :)
