Also msttcorefonts (not in extras, but IMO used quite widely) requires
cabextract to build.

And ies4linux <http://www.tatanka.com.br/ies4linux/>, and possibly
other Wine-type things.

Info on this page <http://synce.sourceforge.net/synce/unshield.php>
suggests that unshield and cabextract are not _quite_ the same...
