bsdtar: tar(1) from FreeBSD, using libarchive

 The bsdtar program has a number of advantages over previous tar
  * Library. Since the core functionality is in a library, it can be
    used by other tools, such as pkg_add.
  * Automatic format detection. Libarchive automatically detects the
    compression (none/gzip/bzip2) and format (old tar, ustar, gnutar,
    pax, cpio, iso9660, zip) when reading archives. It does this for
    any data source.
  * Pax Interchange Format Support. This is a POSIX/SUSv3 extension to
    the old "ustar" tar format that adds arbitrary extended attributes
    to each entry. Does everything that GNU tar format does, only
  * Handles file flags, ACLs, arbitrary pathnames, etc. Pax interchange
    format supports key/value attributes using an easily-extensible
    technique. Arbitrary pathnames, group names, user names, file sizes
    are part of the POSIX standard; libarchive extends this with
    support for file flags, ACLs, and arbitrary device numbers.
  * GNU tar support. Libarchive reads most GNU tar archives. If there
    is demand, this can be improved further.

libarchive1: Single library to read/write tar, cpio, pax, zip, iso9660, etc.

 The libarchive library provides a flexible interface for reading and
 writing streaming archive files such as tar and cpio. The library is
 inherently stream-oriented; readers serially iterate through the archive,
 writers serially add things to the archive. In particular, note that
 there is no built-in support for random access nor for in-place
 libarchive can read at least five tar formats, four cpio formats,
 ISO9660 CD/DVD images (including RockRidge extensions), and ZIP
 libarchive can write two tar formats (ustar and pax), one cpio format
 (odc/POSIX), and two types of shar files (with and without uuencoding).
 The bsdtar Debian package, which is the default tar(1) on FreeBSD,
 is built using libarchive.
 There is also a manpage, tar(5), that provides an excellent description
 of the various tar file formats.
