That fixes that problem, but now the read command started by "db_progress
STEP 1" is reading a filename instead of the the STEP value, resulting in
"Invalid value: ./bin/", and the installation failing.

I tried a few fd/fifo redirection tricks, but couldn't get the right
combination..any ideas?

I also benchmarked this tar method and it seems to be about three or four
times faster than my C version, putting it approximately 10 (!) times faster
than the current shell version. (I agree with Daniel's remark regarding not
depending on 'tar' though -- perhaps live-installer itself could embed or
depend on a functioning tar binary?)
