tar tests

When building LFS-20060420, I had an error while testing tar in 
chapter6.

Tar testsuite assumes that readdir() returns file names in the order 
they are created in but this was wrong for me (linux-2.6.15.7). The 
possible test failure should be noticed in the book, shouldn't it?

Also I found this link: 
http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/bug-tar/2005-07/msg00000.html

The error I had was the following:
...
make[2]: Leaving directory `/root/src/tmp/tar-1.15.1/tests'
make  check-local
make[2]: Entering directory `/root/src/tmp/tar-1.15.1/tests'
/bin/sh ./testsuite
## -------------------------- ##
## GNU tar 1.15.1 test suite. ##
## -------------------------- ##
  1: tar version                                  ok
  2: decompressing from stdin                     FAILED (pipe.at:50)
...
<the rest is ok>
