Unfortunately, the automatic replacing misses three spots where "bsdtar" is meant:

  1. In the manual title, "TAR(1)" (".Dt TAR 1").
  2. In a command example, "$ tar -cvf output.tar @input.mtree" (".Dl $ tar -cvf output.tar @input.mtree").
  3. In the section "Compatibility", "For maximum portability, scripts that invoke tar should use the bundled-argument format above, […]".

I looked at all other matches of "\b(bsd)?tar\b" and they appeared correct to me.
