Actually, that's not quite true for tar 1.19 due to a last-minute
minor configuration bug in the distribution; see

Well, v1.18 compiled just fine on Solaris, anyway.  :-)

You can work around the problem by configuring with something like the
following shell command:

CC='gcc -DCHAR_BIT=8' ./configure

The problem will be fixed in the next tar version.

...but thanks for the note about 1.19, and thanks for your work on GNU tar, Paul.
