Well... what you did was correct. Just one thing ...
./configure and make you can do as a regular user but make install has to be done as root.
I usually do it in one line like this:
./configure && make && su -c 'make install'

Thanks for your reply.

I actually did run all three of the commands as root and everything seemed to install smoothly. Why is TAR being so stubborn?!

Well, if everything worked out "well" then try to find where the executables have been placed. Use "whereis tar".
You should get something like /usr/bin/ and /usr/bin/tar
From there make a simlink to /usr/local/bin/tar just to make sure it is in your path for future use.
