This will be the result of every program that is not able to handle the
prefix extension of POSIX.1 format TAR. The .../bindings/java path
contains file names that exceed 100 characters and thus need the prefix
extension.

If only the uni*es had all the new GNU tar implementation, then it would
be feasible to release in that format.

Apache ANT handles only GNU tar format too.

My approach: install cygwin.
