The pkg_summary database doesn't indicate PKG_SUFX.

We know the download site for the packages because the download location 
for the pkg_summary.gz is in same All directory.

And the filename without the file extension is in the PKGNAME in the 
pkg_summary record.

But we don't know the file extension. From mk.conf:

#PKG_SUFX= .tbz
# Create binary packages with bzip2(1) or gzip(1).
# Possible: .tbz, .tgz
# Default: .tgz

For now I will assume .tgz except for some of my own package builds and 
downloads I have frequently used PKG_SUFX=.tbz

Should we add PKG_SUFX to the pkg_summary(5) in one way or another (maybe 
add FILENAME field that would include that)?
