jhalfs anomoly (not really a bug)

Hi all,

I've been trying to get the latest SVN book to build using the svn trunk 
version of jhalfs.

I have come across a "sort of problem".

My source directory, for reasons which are not very important, had some 
copies of a couple packages in both bz2 and gz formats. (readline and 
less, for example)

When this is the case, the script barfs during the unpack (or is it 
unpack2) routine in chapter 6.

Obviously, it is my own daft fault for having extra copies of packages 
lying around but I'd just thought I would point it out in case anyone 
else gets caught out...
