Has the Procedure for Regenerating A FreeBSD Installation Disk Changed?

	While trying to create a customized FreeBSD installation
disk I am using the standard FreeBSD tar application and doing
the following based upon instructions found in the Handbook for

#mkdir headless #works
# tar -C headless -pxf FreeBSD-9.1-RELEASE-amd64-disc1.iso
	This extracts most of the files but produces a huge
error output as in:

usr/lib/libarchive.so.5: Can't create 'usr/lib/libarchive.so.5'
usr/lib/libasn1.so.10: Can't create 'usr/lib/libasn1.so.10'
	Similar messages for many portions of the image, 759 all totalled.

	The original image mounts properly using mdconfig and
appears to be normal to start with.
