gtar is NOT a dependencies of xarchiver, so it is normal you can't find it installed.

Maybe you have any options in xarchiver to configure tar options ?

I recommend you contact the port manager of xarchiver, and tell him about the issue, he should be able to edit the port so that it uses the bsdtar with alternative switches, or use the gtar.

I imagine that bsdtar is a link to tar but just to prove it run:
$ /usr/bin/bsdtar --version

If the output does not mention GNU then you do not have gnu tar installed, so will need to install it from here:
Tar - GNU Project - Free Software Foundation (FSF) then try Xarchiver again...

# /usr/bin/bsdtar --version
bsdtar 2.5.5 - libarchive 2.5.5

I will look into your suggestion and get back with issues, if any.
EDIT: So you are suggesting that the following lines should be executed before the paragraph of code below is executed?
pkg_add -r gtar

You may want to know that the archive functionality is installed as follows:
# install thunar archive plugin
pkg_add -r thunar-archive-plugin
# install xarchiver
pkg_add -r xarchiver
