[Bug-tar] Problem

We have a problem with tar. Because of something very specific we need to do with tar, there is a limitation in tar that is causing us serious heartache. Would it be possible to get a copy of the source code for tar, so that maybe we can have the manufacturer of our proprietary Unix-based OS (called "SecureOS") compile a version of tar for us that eliminates this problem?
The problem is that tar seems to be hardcoded for a maximum number of characters that can be used for a filename. We need that maximum adjusted to a limit of 120 characters. I don't know what the limit is, but when we try to tar up using a file name that long, tar generates an error message telling us that the filename is to long.
