graphics/linux-dri on 4.11

Odd! The tar in FreeBSD 4.9 (tar (GNU tar) 1.13.25) supports .bz2 files.

Archive format selection:
  -V, --label=NAME                   create archive with volume name NAME
              PATTERN                at list/extract time, a globbing PATTERN
  -o, --old-archive, --portability   write a V7 format archive
      --posix                        write a POSIX format archive
  -j, -y, --bzip, --bzip2, --bunzip2 filter the archive through bzip2
  -z, --gzip, --ungzip               filter the archive through gzip
  -Z, --compress, --uncompress       filter the archive through compress
      --use-compress-program=PROG    filter through PROG (must accept -d)

Maybe it's not tar, maybe the file is broken?
