Summary: Extract files from FLAR archive?

Doing a 'flar split' breaks the FLAR into component parts, including one named
archive.  Though the flar man page says pax is used for the archiving process,
the ID section of the FLAR says it's a cpio archive and compressed with

Running 'zcat archive | cpio -it' blows up because of the filename of the
archive.  Renaming archive to archive.Z allows successful listing (and
subsequent extraction) of files in the archive.
