After a bit of headscratching I ought to point out that the source download
on the RPCEmu website at


isn't actually a tar gz file, it's just a tar file. Was the crucial 'c'
switch missing from the command that created it, meaning it's uncompressed?

SparkFS is man enough to figure it out (changing it's filetype back to &C46)
but extracting it at the Linux bash prompt isn't as forgiving.
