Timo? You mean the <untar> task can handle busybox? Or the untar program?

Peter, I did a quick search for busybox+ustar; here's some relevant links

http://www.opengroup.org/onlinepubs/009695399/utilities/pax.html#tag_04_100_13_06
http://busybox.net/cgi-bin/viewcvs.cgi/trunk/busybox/docs/tar_pax.txt?rev=17252

.. ustar is a posix format ..incompatiblities between busybox and gnu are known 

discussion and apparent fix of busybox incompatibilities:
http://lists.nongnu.org/archive/html/bug-tar/2004-02/msg00014.html
http://lists.debian.org/debian-boot/2004/02/msg01250.html
http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=230872

I'm not sure where those fixes leave us...if recent busybox builds are
compatible with gnu/ant files, then I'd be tempted to leave as is. 

Timo: what happens under busybox 1.5.x?
