ok (that's a nuisance).  I should have noticed it before, since it's
been using tar for some time.  At one point or another I've encountered
different flavors of tar which have different options controlling whether
the original ownership should be used.  Rather than get deep into that
swamp, I guess a
        -chown -R root $(DOCDIR)
will be enough for now.

I've modified the configure check for 'tar' to allow other names, and was
just starting to test to ensure that I can use 'pax' and 'star' in that
