    tar: /dev/rmt/0: No such file or directory
    tar: /dev/rmt/0: No such file or directory
    Installing: zwgetfdate

I think this particular error with tar has been fixed, so installation
has a chance of working with non-GNU tar.

(There is another tar invocation used for backups upon update, and that
one isn't fixed yet.)

Thanks again for the report.
