If I have both EXTRACT_SUFX and DISTFILES set in my package's
makefile, then pkglint tells me that EXTRACT_SUFX is superfluous. If I
remove EXTRACT_SUFX, then the package system doesn't know how to
extract the bzipped tar files listed in DISTFILES.

EXTRACT_SUFX=		.tar.bz2
DISTFILES=		GMT3.3.3_suppl.tar.bz2

Now type pkglint.

If the EXTRACT_SUFX line is removed, then the gzip child of tar complains that the input is not in the gzip format.
