Unpacking aixpdslib packages (AIX)

These will expand into ./usr/local, so e.g.:
   cd /                        # into /usr/local  
   zcat tcp_wrappers.7.6plusipv6.tar.Z | tar -xvf -
Sometimes this is not what you would want, an alternative for example is:
   cd /opt/                    # into /opt
   mkdir     bzip2-1.0.2
   mkdir usr
   ln -sf ../bzip2-1.0.2 usr/local
   zcat bzip2.1.0.2.tar.Z | tar -xvf -

Unpacking Bull freeware archives (AIX)

.exe archives from Bull will expand into /usr/local, which is unwanted if the machine will be an NFS client using this directory as a mount point. In this case temporarily:
mkdir /opt
ln -s /opt /usr/local
prior to installation. .exe archives are self-extracting archives, which eventually install into /usr/local, e.g.:
chmod u+x openssh-  # executable
openssh-            # self extract
inutoc ./                      # creates a toc, if not there
creates a bff and an asc PGP file. With these files smitty - Install is your friend.
