The problem is that on a very fast machine, the cookie created by
'make extract' and the files installed by the package have the same
timestamp.  Then, print-PLIST is unable to find them.

Inserting a 'sleep 1' in won't help because, when
print-PLIST is executed, the files are already installed and already
have the problem.

So a possible hack that will possibly fix the issue could be to
'touch' the extract cookie and set its time to be one second backwards
than its creation time.  Dunno what problems might introduce this,
