i don't think this is the case.  this is a simple web application,
distributed in .tar.gz format.

http://textpattern.com/dload/textpattern-4.0.3.tar.gz

i also tried to download and extract it under non-bsd platforms.
gnu tar deals with it with no errors/warnings whatsoever.

this is why i am asking: what does this warning mean more
precisely, as i know that some tar's (sunos, hpux, linux)
might create files which make bsd tar complain in one way
or the other.
