Which version of tar are you using? Mine is:

bsdtar 3.1.2 - libarchive 3.1.2

Why not just use 10.0 if it is a replacement? IIRC, there haven't been great
incompatible library changes for several major releases (correct me if I'm
wrong). E.g, currently I'm using the official TUG TeXLive binaries which were
compiled for 7.2. They still work fine on 10.0.
If you have old binaries that rely on old version of the system libraries you
can always install one of the misc/compat ports.
