two things:

(1) this log message makes no note of killing the "do-extract" target,
which means "make extract" doesn't actually do anything now, which has
nasty side-effects.

(2) there are other uses for the files in ${WRKSRC}, which are now
stuffed in by the "build" target, which necessarily comes *after* the
"extract" target, but before the "patch" target fails because i have
local patches for this under ${LOCALPATCHES} that no longer work.

can we try to maintain the "extract target makes stuff appear in
${WRKSRC} by whatever means" ideal that we used to have?  you may not
have patches, but others might...
