On Solaris 11, even the native tar has compression support now, you don't need to force gtar.

comment What is a good X application I can use to test the X server on Solaris?
That's where they reside on releases up through (and including) Solaris 10. On Solaris 11 they're now in /usr/bin, though compatibility symlinks remain for /usr/openwin & /usr/X11 paths.
