I find often that this is related to strangeness on using various
unpacking programs on the distribution tarball, and perhaps
disagreements about the format of metadata.   I would suggest looking at
the distfile with various programs, and see what EXTRACT_USING ends up
being.  Sometimes the distfile is in a format supported only by some of

If the distfile really has files with group/other write permissions,
then it might be necesssary to fix those after unpacking.  But probably
if so you should report a bug upstream, as that creates a window when an
attacker could change one of the files.
