There is a statement missing from this update that *may* have a
bad effect on your testing of this script.

Just ahead of these lines:

   unpack_tarball () { # ${1}=<package-${PACKAGE_VER}>
      # Easier add of .tgz
      local archive=`ls -t ${TARBALLS}/${1}.?(tgz|tar.gz|tar.bz2) \

you may need to add this line

   shopt -s extglob  # Note: this has global effect.
