[RndTbl] Mounting UFS

It turns out that /usr/sbin/tar on my Solaris 10 system is not statically
linked (there is no /usr/sbin/static, and I checked ldd tar). Does anyone
know where I can get a statically-linked tar, or should I just suck it up
and copy all of the library dependencies over? I can script that; I'm just
annoyed that I have to.
