I was trying to install octave-forge packages on a Solaris machine and kept getting a "tar: tape read error" and after digging found out that it is because the Solaris provided tar executable does not include the capability to gunzip *and* untar from a single 'tar' call. Would it be possible to split the gunzip and tar process into 2 calls to accomodate?
