Here we go- I like it. Looks a bit more elegant, at least. Can we get
some people to test this before I pull it in for sure? It seems to
work for me.

Does anyone have objections to me pulling Andrew's bsdtar branch?
I think reducing the number of programs we use will make makepkg a bit
cleaner, and this does remove the unrecognized dependency on unzip
that we have. bsdtar is pretty fast as well.
