[Buildroot] Default extract commands fail for kerberos

Hello, buildroot,

I'm working on a recipe for kerberos and I faced a problem with
extracting the sources. The problem is, if I rely on the default
extraction commands the kerberos sources got eaten by tar.

The downloaded tarball krb5-1.6.3-signed.tar doesn't contain the
source files directly. Instead, there are 2 files inside:
krb5-1.6.3.tar.gz and krb5-1.6.3.tar.gz.asc. Obviously, tar
--strip-components=1 removes those 2 files leaving the build dir

I guess it would be useful to be able to overwrite the default
extraction commands via LIBFOO_EXTRACT_CMDS.

Best regards,
Dmitry Ivanov
