note: this also requires xz-utils.

cpr420 aka augiedoggie provided updated archives for tar 1.22 & xz-utils 4.999.9. Even though they were compiled on gcc4, the binaries run properly on gcc2 non-hybrid.

My apologies for not creating the patch from $(HAIKU_TOP).

Version: R1/alpha1R1/Development

Due to a faux pas on my part, the package names had the wrong date format in the filename. The packages have been renamed on the haiku-ports server and I will attach an updated version of the patch done by mmadia.

Perhaps put the xz-utils into it's own optional package and look into adding the expander rules as was done for p7zip. Maybe break the patch into two parts, one to update tar and one to add xz-utils. When adding xz-utils add tar as a dependency.

Hmm.. Makes sense. The BuildHaikuImageExpanderRules may need to be moved out from build/jam/OptionalPackages, to support adding multiple rules to the same file -- sort of similar to how AddUserToHaikuImage works.

Added the updated tar in hrev35694. Let's keep this ticket open until the xz-utils issue with the expander rules is taken care of.
