Oh, that was a surprising commit message...

For me, on Solaris it seems to be using archivers/pax (nbtar).

Looked into it today as there are other packages that also failed to
extract properly for me (notmuch dependencies, py-sphinx related).

Seems as if archivers/pax does not support the ustar pax headers so the
paths longer than 100 characters get truncated (as it's a 100 character
limit in plain tar)

I've hacked together basic support for a few of the headers today and am
currently testing it out, gets me through building of notmuch and its
dependencies at least.

Repo is available on my github, guess I should clean up test and try to
get it into pkgsrc/NetBSD (have a vauge memory of the implementation has
changed on NetBSD to use libarchive)
