Hm, it looks to me as if "tar" is the file not found and not its argument,
and that I am missing the 'set-paths phase. But this has tons of arguments,
which I do not know how to set in my builder.

I could call "tar" myself, but then I would also need to copy
first-subdirectory from gnu-build-system. So having a trivial-build-system
consisting of the phases 'set-paths and 'unpack from gnu-build-system
would be very useful, and also make packages that currently use the trivial
system more easy to write. (I am taking font-dejavu as a model; we would
not need to set PATH to include bzip2, call tar explicitly and chdir into
the created directory).
