Hi, and forgive my poor english ^^

I'm trying since yesterday to install texlive 2005 from DVD on a
sparc/solaris environment.
Unfortunately, the first time I tried to install, i got the message :

sh : xf : file not found

The fact is that the variable $TARPROG is not set while
executing the line number 309 of the file install-tl.sh
causing the message below.

I succeded to install by replacing $TARPROG by string "tar" ;)

I hope this will be usefull for other users
