While unpacking the new apache_1.2.1.tar.{Z,gz} distributions, I constantly get

Happens on binary FTP downloads from a couple of mirrors, including ftp.epix.net,
and from HTTP download.
>How-To-Repeat:
Using command 
gzip -dc apache_1.2.1.tar.gz | tar xvf -
or
zcat apache_1.2.1.tar.Z | tar xvf -
>Fix:
Check and rebuild the tarfile
