  Modified files:
    lib/libarchive       Makefile 
    lib/libarchive/test  test_read_format_ar.c 
  Overhaul of 'ar' support:
    * use "AR_GNU" as the format name instead of AR_SVR4 (it's what everyone is going to call it anyway)
    * Simplify numeric parsing to unsigned (none of the numeric values should ever be negative); don't run off end of numeric fields.
    * Finish parsing the common header fields before the next I/O request (which might dump the contents)
    * Be smarter about format guessing and trimming filenames.
    * Most of the magic values are only used in one place, so just inline them.
    * Many more comments.
    * Be smarter about handling damaged entries; return something reasonable.
    * Call it a "filename table" instead of a "string table"
    * Update tests.
  Enable selection of 'ar', 'arbsd', and 'argnu' formats by name
  (this allows bsdtar to create ar format archives).
  The 'ar' writer still needs some work; it should reject
  entries that aren't regular files and should probably also
  strip leading paths from filenames.
