I'm guessing you got that from the latest src-autoconf template. This is
still broken. It's missing the actual extract.post command:

         @$(call world/patchin/post, @PACKAGE@)

The template whre you got this from is for packages where the source is
part of your BSP. I don't think this is the case for mediasteamer2. You
should use the 'target' new-package template.

For most packages the tarball contains the configure script. In that case
nothing special need to happen. If the configure script is missing, then
