Sorry about the truncation thing, it was my first message to this list.
Thanks Drew, looks like you are spot on. I used this tar package and it went
through 100% this time.
Thanks for the help !

Well, even though your message was truncated before you showed the real
problem, I'm going to guess that tar complained of a corruption of the
tar file. That's a question that gets asked frequently.
There are subtle incompatabilities between Solaris's tar and Gnu tar that
show up when path names get very long. I suspect that is what you
are running into. The fix is use Gnu tar for the unpacking.
You can get the source code from:
although the last person I pointed there for this problem later
told me that he instead got the program from:
You'll need up-to-date Gnu tools aplenty (make and so forth) to build
Perhaps you already have them and just need to adjust your path or
command name to use them. For example, here, I can run Gnu tar by
jessie $ gtar --version
tar (GNU tar) 1.12
