Subject:   2.0.5-RELEASE: Is there a BUG in "ar"?

Is there a bug in "ar"? I wanted to replace a .so module in libc.so
so I did:

# cd /usr/lib
# mkdir tmp
# cd tmp
# ar x ../libc_pic.a
ar: ../libc_pic.a: Inappropriate file type or format

Though there are quite a few .so objects in /usr/lib/tmp, the RPC objects
(specifically, I'm trying to replace the hacked up clnt_udp.so object)
which should be in the libc.so appear not to be there! Looks like the
extract died before completing. Is this a bug in "ar"?

Can anyone shed light on this?
