Now we can generate reproducible archives, with all known tar versions
starting with 1.27, we don't need to clamp the host-tar version to the
old 1.29, and can now bump to any later version.

Drop the host-tar version, and use the same as the target variant.

Note that we still need the _SOURCE trick, to avoid depending on tar to
extract the tar tarball...
