the package core/tar provides the GNU version of tar and provides no man page
the package core/libarchive provides the BSD version of tar as bsdtar and a man page as bsdtar.1.gz
when executing both "man tar" and "man bsdtar" the BSD version of the tar man page shows up
This is a bug because the two versions of tar are incompatible.

Additional info:
Name : tar
Version : 1.27.1-1
Name : libarchive
Version : 3.1.2-6

Steps to reproduce:
man tar
