You might need to use xtar on Tiger as well
Authored by: ruaric on Aug 20, '06 07:07:35AM

It would seem that the version of tar supplied with Tiger may not support long filenames (over 100 characters) since it is now based on BSD tar rather than GNU tar. I would therefore use xtar. Whatever you do though, make sure you test.
