Tool to manage file archives

The `paxutils' packages is an attempt to merge `cpio' with `tar' and add support for the related 'pax' commmand and format required by POSIX. It isn't production quality yet: only test versions are available. The current stable versions of 'cpio' and 'tar' are separately maintained, but the goal is to integrate them into 'paxutils.'
