This is an object class that represents a tgz package, as used in
Slackware. It is derived from Alien::Package.
Translation table between canoical script names and the names used

installpkg (a slackware program) is used because I'm not sanguine
about just untarring a tgz file. It might trash a system.
Scan a tgz file for fields. Has to scan the filename for most of
the information, since there is little useful metadata in the file
Adds a populated install directory to the build tree.
Build a tgz.
