I think I failed to read your mind well enough.
Did you mean
let's change extract/extract.mk to make bsdtar the overall default
as each platform decides that it has something adequate, it can set a
default in platform/Foo.mk
If so, that sounds ok, but it also seems that we shouldn't be in the
middle of that two-step process for a branch.
Right now, as I see it, NetBSD is in better shape than it was a week
ago, and everything else is the same.
