Hmm, "On that path lies danger". If anything it should probably be
a warning rather than an automatic delete, though you can get the
current list of files by running tar tzf on the tarfile...
It would be simple enough to write a script to list the unwanted

should really nuke the old pkgsrc before extracting (Thats
