	Riight - so, perhaps we should have two binaries we can use, and detect
bsdtar and use that only if we don't have gnu tar.

	That is odd indeed. I would expect that should live in
solenv/inc/libs.mk - which also mentions -lcrypto.

detect and adapt to these things.

	Its a great start though; thanks !
