Looks good. I assume you've made sure this installs correctly. I put a couple of suggestions in the description file, although the comment about MAXPHYS might also go into something that the user will see when he installs the package.
I think most folks won't think about the blocksize, but it will affect whether they can read tapes from other systems.
