I was thinking maybe something like the way makepkg compares filenames
to various extended globs, but actually that doesn't help since [[ = ]]
will only expand the right side...

But if we do globbing at all, I want to reliably enforce actual limits
on what .pkg.tar.?z is meant to convey.


find(1) doesn't support the FNM_EXTGLOB flag from fnmatch(3) and we use
PKGEXT as a pattern a couple times for that. We could replace `find
-name` altogether, using globstar.
