I think the politically correct approach to this would clearly be:
install a PDP-11 simulator on the host, and a suitable Unix on it, and
unpack the archives with ar.
Actually, that's wrong: the politically correct thing to do would be
to *buy a PDP-11*. But that seems to be fairly hard nowadays.
The former approach might be fairly practical though.
