Hi Colossus...

Sorry for this, but as OpenBSD doesn't use GNU tar, the switchs are not 
the same.. I get this when i try to create/extract a tar.gz archive.
tar: unknown option -- -
usage: tar {crtux}[014578befHhLmOoPpqsvwXZz]
	  [blocking-factor | archive | replstr] [-C directory] [-I file]
	  [file ...]
        tar {-crtux} [-014578eHhLmOoPpqvwXZz] [-b blocking-factor]
	  [-C directory] [-f archive] [-I file] [-s replstr] [file ...]

see http://www.openbsd.org/cgi-bin/man.cgi?query=tar for the description 
of available options... i suppose i should try to patch the helper 
scripts Xarchiver uses.

Working with .bz2 and .gz archives seems to work, but i can't see the 
list of files in Xarchiver window. Using commandline seems to be ok.
D'n'd from Thunar seems to work too.

If needed, i can test more and more things if you give me a list of 
testcases :)
