>my lfs 3.0-pre4 install is missing a tar manpage...

The GNU folks don't seem to think much of man pages.  You could
try 'info tar', or perhaps get what you want from a simple 'tar --help',
but if you want 'man tar' to give you anything, you'll have to find 
a contributed manpage somewhere.  Google shows that netbsd comes with one:
http://cvsweb.netbsd.org/bsdweb.cgi/gnusrc/gnu/usr.bin/tar/tar.1
Although it doesn't appear to be quite the same version, they have
the same -y flag that LFS uses, so it might be okay.
