On OS X, xattrs support is correctly detected as available, but the build fails because the API is different.
Instead of having setxattr, getxattr and listxattr each prefixed with l, OS X uses the unprefixed version together with the XATTR_NOFOLLOW flag.

This patch makes tar with xattrs support build on both OS X and Linux (Tested on OS X 10.11.3 and Ubuntu 15.10).
