i don't think this is the case. this is a simple web application,
distributed in .tar.gz format.
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.
a self-addressed envelope would be addressed "envelope"
