Actually Dan already fixed it - and broke it:


if [ ! -f $pkgfile -o ! -f $pkg3file ]; then

The if-condition should be with a -a, not with a -o: Normally we have
either $pkgfile or $pkg3file existing, extrapkg should only look in
$PKGDEST if neither exists, but it looks in $PKGDEST if one of them
doesn't exist. Thus it won't find any packages if you don't use $PKGDEST
and fail.
