It looks like NetBSD used to use GNU tar, there are three tar directories in:
http://cvsweb.netbsd.org/bsdweb.cgi/src/gnu/usr.bin/

About a year ago NetBSD switched to bsdtar/libarchive, I believe it's from FreeBSD originally, but it runs on many, many different platforms, see the bsdtar/libarchive homepage:
http://people.freebsd.org/~kientzle/libarchive/

And here is bsdtar/libarchive in the NetBSD source tree:
http://cvsweb.netbsd.org/bsdweb.cgi/...st/libarchive/
http://cvsweb.netbsd.org/bsdweb.cgi/src/lib/libarchive/
http://cvsweb.netbsd.org/bsdweb.cgi/...n/tar/Makefile
