Similar to bug #594734, landing of bug #616999 in broke nightly builds on OpenBSD, see :

Errors message starts with :
tar: Link name too long for ustar /var/buildslave-mozilla/mozilla-central-amd64/build/toolkit/mozapps/extensions/test/xpcshell/head_addons.js

bsd tar has a limit of 100 chars in the ustar format, so gtar/$(TAR) should be used instead. I don't know why the commit triggers it now though.
