Most excellent, Tim.  Any chance of bsdtar being made available for 
-STABLE systems, or as a port?

[ I keep one 5.x system around for testing the ports I maintain, so I 
still could do some testing if not, but I'd be able to use it in many 
more places if it was MFC'ed or made available via ports.... ]
