It is only important to bunzip2 unless you supply
it with other command line arguments. To tar,
it should not be important. The "j" argument
is just not known to many people.
You did not tell him that
will completely disgorge the tar file into /usr/local/src
UNLESS there is directory information in the tar ball.
For that reason, I would
first to see the contents.
If there is no directory structure in it, I would make
a subdirectory of /usr/local/src and disgorge the
tar ball there.

AFAIK the name of the file is not important as the program reads the
file headers to decide the type.
