#1693: Fortify unpacking in the scripts generated for BLFS
 Reporter:  pierre       |      Owner:  pierre
     Type:  enhancement  |     Status:  new
 Priority:  normal       |  Milestone:
Component:  jhalfs       |    Version:  SVN
 Severity:  normal       |   Keywords:
 Presently, the scripts account only for two cases for the downloaded
 - a zip archive
 - a tar archive (compressed or not)
 Now that cacerts has been included in the possible scripts, the downloaded
 file may also be a text file. It would therefore be nice to account for
 this case.

 Also, the scripts always suppose that the zip archive is not extracted in
 its own directory, so that it creates one. That does not work for example
 for jasper. So it would be good also to test whether unpacking has created
 a directory or not.
