It is because tar from solaris doesn't handle a extension to the tar format
that allows path names of unlimited size.
I had to use gtar to uncompress. It did but it complained a lot of the gid_t
number being (uint32_t)-1 and being out of its limits of
[std::numeric_limits<int32_t>::min(), std::numeric_limits<int32_t>::max()]
and returned a process return different of 0. Since it was a automated script
I changed to using the zip file.

It is not a limitation of the filesystem, since unzip works flawlessly.
