As seen here:
and here:

uclibc, aix, maybe others, cause a bug in tar-1.14 preventing 'tar jxf' from 
working (my previously posted bzip2 bug). It was fixed in tar-current in May 
2004, tar-1.14.90 was released (at alpha.gnu.org) in September. Instead of 
patching this one bug I think its better to use tar-1.14.90.
