You can also use 

	tar -zxf control.tar.gz *control

which does not produce an error, and extracts either one.  This is the fix I
supplied for lintian when the tar upstream changed the way pathname whacking
happens in tar... which our tools depended on.  Given that we know what's in
a control.tar.gz, the wildcard is not problematic.
