in the *.SlackBuild with sources on github that I approved, I opted
for the solution you proposed earlier, David

tar xvf $CWD/$PRGNAM-$VERSION.tar.gz || tar xvf $CWD/$VERSION.tar.gz

or (in some cases)

tar xvf $CWD/$PRGNAM-$VERSION.tar.gz || tar xvf $CWD/v$VERSION.tar.gz

so it should work if content_disposition is on or off in /etc/wgetrc
