[Bug-tar] [PATCH] tar.1: minor fixes

From: Kir Kolyshkin
Subject: [Bug-tar] [PATCH] tar.1: minor fixes
Date: Fri, 22 Mar 2019 12:30:28 -0700

1. Add missing .TP before TAR_SUBCOMMAND, otherwise it is merged with
the description of the previous option.

2. Fix typesetting of pax(1) utility (last word was in bold).

3. Remove .B from examples (some were in bold, some not,
and by default bold is not used in examples).
