In case it wasn't obvious already: Me. OpenBSD's tar(1) does not support
that option:

    tar: unknown option -- J
    usage: tar {crtux}[014578befHhjLmNOoPpqsvwXZz]
               [blocking-factor | archive | replstr] [-C directory] [-I file]
               [file ...]
           tar {-crtux} [-014578eHhjLmNOoPpqvwXZz] [-b blocking-factor]
               [-C directory] [-f archive] [-I file] [-s replstr] [file ...]
