    The tar utility is already included as part of Darwin

    Typing tar --version in the terminal yields the following:tar (GNU tar) 1.15.1

    If you really want the latest version (v 1.20) , download the source tarball from here:

    GNU tar

    And do the usual configure, make, install sequence to install it on your system. If you need help doing this, let us know.
