Item1960: Extension installer fails on FreeBSD
When Archive::Tar is not installed, extension installer falls back to command line tar but fails because the file in /tmp is not there apparently:
Archive::Tar is not installed; trying tar on the command-line
tar failed: No such file or directory Failed to unpack archive /tmp/7JaTDdOcDm.tgz
Use of uninitialized value in pattern match (m//) at /usr/local/www/sites/foswiki/lib/Foswiki/Configure/UIs/EXTEND.pm line 237, line 1.
After installing Archive::Tar, untarring works fine.
Configure tells "may be required by the Extensions Installer in configure if command line tar or unzip is not available". Can we detect this and show a warning?

This code has changed a lot on trunk; really need an updated test of this, please.

Code in trunk is also wrong.
This is a duplicate of Item2609
