It seems that the version of tar used at that time is picky about simlinks, and exit with an error when it find .. in paths. Which is the case for gawk. A workaround is to issue:
# ln -sf /bin/gawk /usr/bin
Same may happen with smbmount
# ln -sf /usr/sbin/smbmount /usr/bin
# ln -sf /bin/loadkeys /usr/bin
Another possibility is to upgrade your tar version by using 1.15 instead.
