In 2.9.9 there is an assumption that GNU tar is used. This has been
removed in the CVS and it will work on MACs. However, you can't just
take pkg.m, but need a number of other changes and so either a full CVS
is recommended or wait for 2.9.10. This is the major reason I haven't
uploaded the packages of octave-forge to sourceforge or changed the
website over to the new octave-forge web site.
