Since that version of tar is derived from GNU tar, it can handle
POSIX.1. However, it is *not* able to unpack gzip files, neither is it
able to pipe from gzip. Thus the unpacking must be done in two steps if
you are using that program.

Untarring the pre-unzipped archive went OK as far as I can tell.

I don't see why this is better than cygwin tho.
