wondering if the tar packaged with base freebsd is the same as
gnutar.. and possibly issues with versions.  

the reason is I have a tarball created on a linux box with the gnutar
that was packaged with it, yet tar tvf ... tells me it doesn't look
like a tar archive, and quits... yuck.  any advice?
