The message "@LongLink: typeflag 'L' not recognized" during unpacking of ODM for Solaris

During this unpacking I used tar as usually:

tar -xzvf IBM_ODM_V8.0.1_SOL_SPARC_LAUN_DISK1.tar

But I got a lot of messages:

tar: ././@LongLink: typeflag 'L' not recognized, converting to regular file
x ././@LongLink, 124 bytes, 1 tape blocks

And in the end:

tar: directory checksum error

Use GNUTar in this case:

/usr/sfw/bin/gtar -xvf IBM_ODM_V8.0.1_SOL_SPARC_LAUN_DISK1.tar

All will be OK.
