Good idea. Here comes the patch:

To apply it:
    # cd /usr/src
    # patch -p1 < PATH/ar-20080112.diff

To enable the build of BSD ar: (disable GNU ar)
    # cd /usr/src
    # make buildworld -DWITH_BSDAR
    # ...
    # make installworld -DWITH_BSDAR

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated :)
