Description Rodney Gordon II 2002-01-25 05:24:56 UTC
In the documentation to setup a build system it is not strongly
stated to use the -p command in tar, which is required. I stupidly
at first just did 'tar jxvf' which didn't preserve the props.

Just a FYI and a future documentation request. Thanks :)
