IMO we should drop the special casing of using .tbz. I want to add a new
option to pkg_create to specify the compression type to use and just
always use .tgz. That's a bit of cheating, but pkg_install is smart
enough to handle the compression (or not) without knowing the extension.

E.g. in mk.conf there is PACKAGE_COMPRESSION which is one of none, gzip
and bzip2 ATM.
