    lib/libarchive       archive_read_support_format_tar.c 
  MFC 1.62:    Fix reading of files that use pax 'size' attribute
  to store size.  In particular, the pax 'size' attribute is required
  for any file over 8G.
  This seems to fix tar -cf - | tar -xf - when there are files
  over 8G in the heirarchy being copied.
