[gccsdk] Symlink: Unknown file type

Running 'tar cvf  libs.tar !Sharedlibs'
gives the error 'Unknown filetype; file ignored' with Symlink
(1c8) types
e1f type is OK and is not in my mimemap, so I am assuming there
is a filetype map in unixlib?
Does this mean that when new filetypes are used in RISC OS that
unixlib needs to be updated if ports are to recognise them?

TIA  Ron M.
