S tar

http://cdrtools.sourceforge.net/private/star.html
The Schily tape archiver.

Star is a very fast, POSIX-compliant tar archiver. It saves many files together into a single tape or disk archive, and can restore individual files from the archive. It includes command line interfaces for "tar", "Sun-Tar", "cpio", "pax", and "gnutar". It includes a FIFO for speed, a pattern matcher, multi-volume support, the ability to archive sparse files and ACLs, the ability to archive extended file flags, automatic archive format detection, automatic byte order recognition, automatic archive compression/decompression, remote archives, and special features that let it be used for full and incremental backups. It includes the only known platform independent "rmt" server program.

According to NetBSD, it's the oldest free TAR implementation. A GNU/Linux port is very possible as it currently works on FreeBSD, NetBSD and OS X.
