Could it be that your tar does not support some options?
Doesn't our installer use only our own self-provided tar (and wget and
perl) on Windows? So Dan's installed versions wouldn't be relevant.
Given all of Dan's reported download problems, I rather suspect what was
downloaded was corrupted, hence the "file not found in archive".
Did we put in a test to see if a downloaded file was actually usable
(could be decoded by lzma + tar)? I know I asked for that, and I also
know I never implemented it myself :(.
Maybe we can fix this by staying with one selected mirror.
This would clearly be desirable anyway, to avoid version skew among
Meanwhile, -url is the way to go.
