pgp2 doesn't built due to an error during the extraction phase. I've
been looking into it and found the following line being responsible:

        cd ${WRKDIR} && ${EXTRACT_CMD} -xf pgp263ii.tar && ${RM} -f pgp263ii.tar

which will expand to:

cd /usr/src/pkgsrc/security/pgp2/work && /usr/bin/gzcat
/usr/src/pkgsrc/distfiles//$file | /usr/bin/tar xf -  -xf pgp263ii.tar
&& /bin/rm -f pgp263ii.tar

EXTRACT_CMD is defined as


I changed ${EXTRACT_CMD} to ${GTAR} in the offending line
which built and installed the package succesfully!

Is this a known issue or is my pkgsrc tree getting out of wack... ;)
