That's a "buggy" version of tar on your host. It mis-diagnoses issues
with certain tar files.  You can safely ignore it.

I don't know what to make of those other errors either, as I've never
seen them.  jhalfs should output what it copied from $SRC_ARCHIVE to
$LFS/sources at the start of its run.  The only thing I'd suggest is
that you ensure do an 'svn revert -R .' on both jhalfs and lfs-trunk
checkouts then an 'svn up' to ensure you're running the latest code on
both.  You are using a checkout of jhalfs' trunk aren't you?
