I guess I'll have to take your word for it as there is nothing in what
you mention that verifies this statement. rpm -ql tar will not verify
that any files are actually there, just that they got installed at some

Did you verify /bin/tar was actually there before you did the yum
localinstall? Perhaps a colleague playing a prank on you? Or an
accidental removal while using mc without confirmation on delete

Since both x86_64 packages *and* i386 packages seem to be
missing /bin/tar I doubt this is a multi arch issue.
