uclibc vs glibc

I spoke too soon...

$ tar jxf gzip-1.3.5.tar.bz2
tar: Unaligned block (5000 bytes) in archive
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now

Thats just after installing bzip2. However this works:

$ bzcat gzip-1.3.5.tar.bz2 | tar xf -


Compiling and installing Tar didn't help, and Tar's testsuite failed 4 tests, 
one for gzip. Bzip2's tests all passed.
