Extensions are created as .oxt archives during build. They must be
unpacked into the installation tree; the old installer handled this
through the infamous ARCHIVE flag in scp2, but gbuild does not do that.
When we replaced ARCHIVE by FILELIST half a year ago, I briefly
considered updating the extension handling stuff too, but it would have
been a nontrivial change with a high probability of regressions for a
minimal gain, so I decided not to.

Anyway, there is just 2-3 of them, so you can unpack them by hand if you
really need them (that was necessary in the dev-install times too, for
rebuilds, so there is no big change).
