GNU version of tar, a tape file archiver

Although tar is supplied with HP-UX, gtar has more options and handles absolute paths as relative paths, restores the original dates of directories when extracting and also supports large file systems. The gettext and libiconv packages should be installed first, prior to installing tar.

There are run-time dependencies that need to be installed first. Why not use depothelper to install them all in one go?

Run-time dependencies:
gettext libiconv libunistring            
Build-time dependencies:
gettext libiconv libunistring make
