Great, I just updated the FreeBSD port to reflect this.

Btw wouldn't it be better if it is
instead of
I find the "Src" part a little unappropriate because a common way of
thinking is:
"XaraLXSrc-0.4r798.tar.gz is the source distribution, so then
XaraLX-0.4r798.tar.gz is not a source (probably it's binary) because
it does not have Src in its name". But actually the latter is also a
source distribution, which is confusing.

Also it is good if foowhatever.tar.gz extracts in foowhatever/
subdirectory, but XaraLXSrc-0.4r798.tar.gz extracts in
XaraLX-0.4r798/ rather than XaraLXSrc-0.4r798/

What do you think?

Testing can show the presence of bugs, but not their absence.
