I think so.

The problem with the cabextract package was the same as the problems 
with all of Jari's other packages: the build script had errors.  For 
example, you cannot download the -src of cabextract and build a new 
version for distribution.  If you do, the build script within that new 
-src package will be called cabextract-0.6.1-2-0.6.1-2.sh, or some such.
